As a kid, did you ever dream about sailing in a pool, or riding on a float big enough to fit all of your friends? Welcome to the San Alfonso del Mar, a private resort in Algarrobo, Chile that boasts the world’s most massive swimming pool. I think you'll like it here...
People literally venture to this hotel for the pool...which is 0.6 miles long and covers a total of 20 acres.
The deep end? Oh, you know. 135 feet. (No, you cannot stand. Not even on your tip-toes.)
You can swim, boat, kayak, and even windsail through the crystalline water.
The pool's filtration system filters 66,000,000 gallons of seawater from the Pacific Ocean into the pool at any given moment.
The pool is estimated to have cost a cool 2 billion dollars to build.
The view at night is worth every penny. It's almost other-worldly.
And this might just be the selling point: you can chill out and float with your friends on a massive lily pad.
Here's Google maps' aerial view of the pool.
Another jaw-dropper of a photograph. This would make for some pretty insane games of Marco Polo.
If you get sick of the pool, there are tons of private beaches...
But the pool is roughly 16 degrees warmer than the ocean, so that's not so likely.
Here's an epic video of this Guiness Book World Record holder. Please pardon the cheezy music and enjoy the view.
So who wants to buy me a ticket to Chile?
