This is the worlds largest swimming pool

This is the Crystal Lagoon at San Alfonso del Mar resort, Chile, an artificial paradise that’s large enough for sailing and clocks in at three fifths of a mile long. The pool opened in December 2006 after nearly five years of construction work.

It sucks in seawater from the adjacent Pacific Ocean and filters it using a state of the art system. It also hold the Guinness record for the world’s deepest – so if you don’t feel like diving 35 meters (115ft) to the bottom, it might be best to bring some spare goggles.
