Have you ever thought about what the world’s largest swimming pool looks like? Well now you can see it! Located in Sal Alfonso Del Mar in Chile, this world’s biggest pool is a whopping half a mile long and 135 feet deep. Yep – you read right. The pool covers a total of 20 acres and contains 66,000,000 gallons of filtered sea water at any given time. Let that sink in for a second. So without any further ado, I give you, the world’s LARGEST swimming pool!
This is the glorious view from the top
And this is a Google satellite view of the pool
This thing is just humongous
Then maintenance for the pool costs around $4 million
It is always 16F warmer than the ocean
The water filtration costs about $3.5 million
The pool only opened in 2006…so it’s still pretty new
Oh and did I mention that it holds the world record for the largest pool?
This whole thing coast 1.5-2 billion to build
Well I definitely know where MY next vacation will be – what about yours? Share this incredible monstrosity with others 🙂
