Located in Chile, the Guinness World Record holder for the biggest pool in the world can accommodate paddling and sailing activities
The pool at San Alfonso del Mar resort holds up to 66 million gallons of water.
Located in the city of Algorrobo, the man-made body of water is roughly the same size as 16 football fields.
With a depth of up to 115 feet, it provides an idyllic location to lounge and relax, or take advantage of water activities such as canoeing and kayaking.
Just as impressive as its mammoth proportions, is the process involved in treating the saltwater provided by the Pacific Ocean. The technology belongs to Crystal Lagoons, a global-leader in conceptualising and constructing larger-than life amenities.
Apart from the scope of their water projects, Crystal Lagoons also employs environmentally stable innovations. It claims to use up to 100 times less chemicals than other treatment processes applied to conventional pools and drinking water, and complies with the strictest international microbiological and physiochemical water quality criteria.
However, San Alfonso del Mar resort isn’t the only place Crystal Lagoons has made its mark. It’s also the mastermind behind the biggest man-made lagoon in the world, located in Sharm El Sheikh. The proud owner is CityStar luxury hotel, and its lagoon spreads up to 12.5 hectares.
