    World's Largest Pool

    Impressive!

    A Breathtaking Lagoon

    Construction of the world's largest crystal-clear saltwater lagoon has been successfully completed. Upon execution of the last expansion stage, this lagoon –San Alfonso's signature amenity- has reached its final size; over one kilometer in length, 8 hectares in surface area and 2.5 million liters of water. Too big to picture? Let's put it this way, the size of the lagoon is equivalent to 6,000 standard-size 8-meter long swimming pools.

    Yet with size being as impressive as it is, the lagoon's highlight is the crystal-clear tropical blue color of its water attained through cutting-edge technology developed by Crystal Lagoons Corp.* that allows to harvest, filter and permanently re-circulate salt water. Yet there's more to it. The lagoon’s water temperature in summer is 26ºC, nine degrees warmer than the ocean and certainly a feature all our guests appreciate.
    Accordingly, San Alfonso offers this amazing pleasurable experience of the Caribbean ocean on Chile’s seaside.

    Nothing wrong with mentioning it again. It is amazing. The newer members won't have seen the old posts, so they should check out the old thread, but there is always more to say after that.
