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.

For more information and more photos, see the Daily Mail Online

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