Floating in the middle of the ocean seems exciting while also dangerous. And a safe way is to build an “ocean” in the land. Well, how? Don’t worry, here we’ll tell you that this is actually true. A swimming pool with half a mile long and 135 feet deep, that’s San Alfonso del Mar in Algarrobo which boasts the world’s largest swimming pool. I can’t even imagine how large it is. And I’ve already hated my own poor swimming poor in the backyard. See what’s it like, and check out how it is built. (Via: Viral Nova)
The pool opened in December 2006.
It currently holds the Guinness World Record for largest pool in the world by area.
That water seems charming.
The pool cost an estimated $1.5 to $2 billion to build.
The water filtration system alone cost about $3.5 million.
I’m not sure what’s going on here, but I want to join in.
Google maps aerial view of the pool.
Annual maintenance for the pool costs about $4 million.
If you get sick of the pool (not likely) you can go to the beach.
Have you ever wanted to go sailing in a pool? Now you can.
The pool water is about 16°F warmer than the ocean.
