San Alfonso del Mar is a private resort in Algarrobo, Chile, about 60miles west of Santiago. The resort had one of the world's largest swimming pools . At the time of its completion in 2006, it was in the Guinness Book of World Records for the largest pool in the world by area.
The pool is 1,013 m (3,323 ft) long, covering 20 acres, containing some 250 million litres (66 million US gallons) of seawater, with a maximum depth of 3.5 m (11.5 ft).The water is pumped from the Pacific Ocean, then filtered and treated. There are Olympic-sized swimming pools and the pool is officially the world's largest, and reports say it cost as much as $2 billion to build.
This saltwater pool, which held the first-ever Guinness world record for largest man-made lagoon, is the exact same crystal-clear view of the sea just beyond it. The pool's more than a kilometer long, covering nearly 20 acres in area—that's bigger than 15 football fields!,The pool is plenty big for sailing and the other water sports activities like kayaking, scuba-diving instruction, all manner of aqua-fitness classes, a waterslide, and more.
