MUST SEE! The World’s Biggest Swimming Pool – It’s 1/2 Mile Long and 20 Acres!

The trouble with most swimming pools is that they’re normally just a little bit too small, aren’t they? Even the biggest ones you find could always be just that wee bit larger. That’s not a problem for the people who stay at the the exclusive San Alfonso del Mar resort in Algarrobo, Chile. Not one bit. You see, their pool’s pretty big. Like, 1/2 mile long-type big. Like 20 acres big.

You’ll love this.

Let’s start with a rather spectacular aerial view…

Opened in December 2006, the Goliath of a pool takes an incredible 66,000,000 gallons of water. 66 million!

It’s thought that the total costs involved in building the pool reached $1.5bn. That’s right, that’s ‘bn’, not ‘m’!

You won’t be surprised to learn that it holds the record as the largest swimming pool in the world.

Each year, it costs anywhere up to $4m just to maintain the thing!

The water filtration system needs to be a bit of a beast to cope with it all. Which explains why it cost more than $3.5m!

And even if you ignore the pool (which is admittedly, pretty difficult!), the rest of the resort looks pretty great too!

Although it does seem slightly odd to locate such a magnificent pool so close to the ocean!
