If you like doing laps in the swimming pool, you might want to stock up on the energy drinks before diving in to this one :)  It is more than 1,000 yards long, covers 20 acres, had a 115ft deep end and holds 66 million gallons of water. 


Take a deep breath before you try swimming a lap in the swimming pool at the San Alfonso del Mar resort inChile. The San Alfonso del Mar resort is situated on Chile’s southern coast, 100 km west of Santiago.


Already drawing the crowds in the South American resort of San Alfonso del Mar in Chile, this artificial lagoon and swimming pool is eight hectares in size and contains an incredible 250,000 cubic meters of water. Acknowledged by Guinness World Records as being the world’s largest swimming pool, the lagoon trounces all other record holders in the category, including the Orthlieb pool in Casablanca, Morocco, itself a huge 150 meters by 100 meters – the San Alfonso pool is 1km in length.
