Francis Ford Coppola unveils a private island hideaway in Belize that is so small you can walk round it in five minutes.

Academy award-winner Francis Ford Coppola unveils a private island hideaway in Belize

Film, wine and holiday resorts - is there no end to this man's talents?

American screenwriter and film director Francis Ford Coppola has unveiled a new location in his hospitality portfolio, in the shape of a private island.

Beach lovers can now castaway at Coral Caye, an idyll eight miles off the coast of Placencia, Belize, that's only two acres, meaning a stroll around the perimeter would only take about five minutes.

The rustic two-acre retreat is a 20-minute boat ride from the Family Coppola Resortís Turtle Inn, making it the only accommodation on the Belize mainland to also offer a private island.

Groups of up to 12 can indulge their Huckleberry Finn fantasies with a stay at the islandís two wooden clad cottages.

hopefully fine, but if not, FC is no stranger to rebuilding after a 'cane.
