The Biggest Pool - San Alfonso del Mar

San Alfonso del Mar is a resort located in Algarrobo, Chile frequently noted because of its 1,000-meter long, 19-acre outdoor pool, which holds a Guinness world record as the largest in the world. The resort's large pool utilizes a technology developed by the Chilean company Crystal Lagoons, which uses water pumped from the Pacific Ocean, that is then filtered and treated for supply to the pool.

It has been reported to have a depth of 35 meters (115 feet) which would make it the world's deepest pool, however this appears to stem from confusion over it being "transparent to a depth of 35 meters".

Apart from its large size, the lagoon has another spectacular feature: its waters have the transparency and intense turquoise color of tropical seas. This has been made possible thanks to an advanced technology developed by the company Crystal Lagoons., which is able to collect ocean water and keep it in perfect condition. But this is not all that it is there: during summer, the lagoon further maintains a pleasant temperature that borders 26ºC, nine degrees more than the nearby sea temperature. The success and exclusivity of this technology has enabled Crystal Lagoons to export its know-how to major international real-estate projects.

In this way, at San Alfonso an unbelievable goal is achieved: feeling the enjoyment of the Caribbean Sea right at the Chilean central coast.

An incredible panoramic view

San Alfonso’s buildings are designed in such a way that every apartment has large balconies that face the sea.

From there, the spectacle is really impressive. Algarrobo’s Large Beach, extending for more than two kilometers, the bay full of multiply colored sailboats and the single-breaking-wave blue sea, ideal for fishing enthusiasts, constitute a must-see landscape with a perspective that extends from the lagoon to the sea with no element or building that breaks its continuity and harmony.
