Imagine a swimming pool so large that you need a boat to get from one side to the other.
Water so blue that you think you’re swimming in the Caribbean sea. Water so warm that you feel as though you’re soaking in a hot tub. Welcome to San Alfonso del Mar Resort in Algarrobo, Chile! This is where the world’s largest and deepest swimming pool is located, as recorded in the Guinness Book of World Records.
Certainly not your average pool with 66 million gallons of filtered salt water containing fewer chemicals used in your average pool. This pool, a.k.a. lagoon, spans 8 hectares with the deepest waters being 115 feet, separated from the ocean by a walkway. The water is so clean and clear that you can see the bottom at any depth!
You are kept warm with pool temperatures of about 26ºC. So spacious is this pool that you will never find yourself wall to wall with people within your proximity. With pools extending to the deepest parts of endless water you have the option to sail, kayak or waterski. Other water sports include the use of inflatable trampolines, scuba diving, water aquatics or even catching a swimming lesson or two. For stormy days there are also indoor pool amenities.
Sun worshippers will love the white sand and palm tree paradise located at each building with private beaches which all come with rooves for rainy days and heated sand. Yes! Heated sand! Nothing was left out when this lagoon was designed by Crystal Lagoons Corporation.
There are many other activities available at the resort including a waterslide, tennis, volleyball, playgrounds and pubs.
The resort also offers apartment rentals with luxurious waterfront views equipped with large balconies for those who want to call this pool playground home. One of the longest beaches and coastlines make this place an absolute must see for any True Beach Lover.
After eye-torturing photos of this incredible pool in Chile, imagine Crystal Lagoons are now coming to Florida. Jump right in and let us know what you think :)
