The world’s largest swimming pool is located at the San Alfonso del Mar Resort in Chile.
The enormous man-made pool, set along the coastline, is larger than 20 Olympic-size pools and holds a whopping 66 million gallons of water, according to The Daily Mail.
Crystal Lagoons, the creator of the pool, claims it’s six-times bigger than its closest competitor, the Orthlieb Pool in Casablanca, Morocco.
It also holds the Guinness World Record for being the world’s deepest (115 feet) and up keep costs a cool 2 million pounds annually.
One million of that goes to the pool boy. 😀
The nearly 20-acre pool sucks water directly in from the sea using a computer-controlled suction and filtration system.
Why a pool right next to a beautiful ocean?
The temps in that water are very cold and the currents are reportedly treacherous.

I like this pool very much.
I like this pool so much that now I want to travel to Chile.
However, they better not play that soundtrack at the resort or I won’t go. 😀
