Plunge into the World’s Largest Swimming Pool

San Alfonso Del Mar Resort

This hot, hot, hot summer, I want to chill off the coast of Chile and plunge into the a £1billion swimming pool of more than 1,000 yards long, which covers 20 acres and a depth of 115 ft.

This dream summer destination is acknowledged by the Guinness Book of World Records as the World’s Largest Swimming Pool.

 

San Alfonso Del Mar Resort at Algarrobo, located on Chile’s southern coast is a man-made saltwater lagoon that holds 66 million gallons of water. It defeats the other amazing record holders in this category, including Orthlieb pool in Casablanca, Morocco.

The design and size is equivalent to 6,000 standard domestic pool. This amazing turquoise  pool is navigable by small boats and the genius idea of  Crystal Lagoons founder, biochemist and Chilean businessman Fernando Fischmann. It was completed in December 2006.

Even Michael Phelps will  need to maximize his endurance before diving on this long lap.

This revolutionary swimming pool uses a computer-controlled suction and filtration system to keep fresh seawater in permanent circulation. It causes hardly any chemical that will harm and damage the ocean.

Sun, Sea and Swimming Pool!
