The Oscar nominated actor cum environmentalist, Leonardo Di Caprio has plans to heal an island soon and turn it into an eco-resort.

The activist has bought Blackadore Caye, 104 acres of wild, uninhabited land off the coast of Belize.

The resort will start entertaining tourists from 2018. The Blackadore Caye, a restorative island will have the combinations of many luxury resorts, sprawling villas, giant pools and beautiful sunset views.

The Blackadore Caye has gone through a lot of over-fishing and deforestation of its mangrove trees. The actor is working hard to get the beauty of the island back.

The island is 45-minute boat ride from Philip S. W. Goldson International Airport in Belize City and 15-minute boat ride from San Pedro, the nearest big town. The place has been used for several years by Juan Rovalo, a biologist who leads a team of scientists studying the caye.

The island used to be a famous spot for fishermen, who stopped on their way to the markets in Mexico.

After having a great experience on the island the actor decided to purchase it for $1.75 million, a news report said.

Almost 45 per cent of the island will be designated for the conservation of area. The resort will be built using as many native materials as possible, and the developers hope to rely on local laborers, who will be trained in green-building techniques.

As far as the guidelines for the guests are concerned, this will include no plastic water bottles on the island. Once the guests reach there, they will go through an ecology orientation program.
