See This Guy Floating In The Middle Of Seemingly Nowhere? Well, You’re In For A Big Shock.
Have you ever thought your backyard or public swimming pool was just too darned small? Maybe it”d be nice to have something a little bigger? How does half a mile long pool sound? What about a deep end thats 135 feet? Yeah, thats what I thought. The San Alfonso del Mar is a private resort in Algarrobo, Chile that boasts the worlds largest swimming pool. Not a bad tourist attraction. The pool is 0.6 miles long covering 20 acres in total. At any given time it contains around 66,000,000 gallons of filtered seawater from the Pacific Ocean.
The pool opened in December 2006.
It currently holds the Guinness World Record for largest pool in the world by area.
That water. Just wow.
The pool cost an estimated $1.5 to $2 billion to build.
The water filtration system alone cost about $3.5 million.
Im not sure whats going on here, but I want to join in.
