Let’s go for a dip!

If your a big swimming fan like myself be sure and book your next trip to Chili where the largest swimming pool in the world has been opened. The second largest pool is found in Orthlieb – nicknamed the Big Splash – in Morocco, which is only 150 yards long and 100 yards wide, which is a mere 150 yards long and 100 yards wide. This new pool is so big that you could take even a small paddle boat on it!! Crazy!!

If you like doing laps in the swimming pool, you might want to stock up on the energy drinks before diving in to this one.

It is more than 1,000 yards long, covers 20 acres, had a 115ft deep end and holds 66 million gallons of water.

Yesterday the Guinness Book of Records named the vast pool beside the sea in Chile as the biggest in the world.

But if you fancy splashing out on one of your own – and you have the space to accommodate it – then beware: This one took five years to build, cost nearly 1billion and the annual maintenance bill will be 2million.

The man-made saltwater lagoon has been attracting huge crowds to the San Alfonso del Mar resort at Algarrobo, on Chile ‘s southern coast, since it opened last month.

Its turquoise waters are so crystal clear that you can see the bottom even in the deep end.

Chile ‘s monster pool uses a computer- controlled suction and filtration system to keep fresh seawater in permanent circulation, drawing it in from the ocean at one end and pumping it out at the other.
