May 30, 2012 - World's Largest Swimming Pool



Quote:
The Crystal Lagoon, located at the San Alfonso del Mar resort in Algarrobo, Chile, is the world's largest outdoor pool, stretching more than half of a mile and filled with 66 million gallons of water.

When you click through to the link to see the slide show, it looks like some of the sailboats in the swimming pool are floating in mid air, the water is so clear.

Umm is there something wrong with the beach?



Gravdigr  Wednesday May 30 05:34 PM

It has fish poo in it.

And is not expensive enough.



BigV  Wednesday May 30 06:16 PM

salty fish poo at that.

eta:

Pictures from other projects from the same company from around the world, including construction projects.

Number of fish turds I've seen while swimming in the ocean: 0
Number of used bandaids I've seen while swimming in pools: 76

I'll stick with the ocean. Also, it's free.



xoxoxoBruce  Thursday May 31 02:19 AM

It's not free everywhere, especially New Jersey.



Trilby  Thursday May 31 06:38 AM

I like the saltiness of ocean water. And the breath taking coldness.

Best beach in America is Race point beach Atlantic side in Cape
Cod. When I win the lotto imma buy me a house there.



Blueflare  Thursday May 31 07:46 AM

The blueness of it hurts my eyes.



ZenGum  Thursday May 31 08:05 AM

That's called chlorine reaction.



tracey  Thursday May 31 01:56 PM

I would definitely take the beach over the pool, I miss the ocean...God how I miss the ocean. Don't miss the jellyfish though.



Leus  Thursday May 31 05:26 PM

Water down here is cold as heck, as well as dangerous, so it's not nice for swimming.

The pool uses sea water, so it is salty. It is very nice and not that expensive (you can rent a nice apartment for about US$250 a day.)

At Bondi Beach it is very common to encounter a "Bondi Cigar". It's not a *fish* turd.

Why dangerous, Leus, undertow, critters that sting/bite?

Carl Spackler: This place got a pool?

Ty Webb: Pool and a pond... a pond would be good for you

Leus is in Chile, so...

...a variation of Montezuma's Revenge?
