The world’s largest swimming pool is located in a seaside resort in Chile, and rivals the beach front in terms of size. How else can 66 million gallons of chlorinated water be contained?
The largest swimming pool in the world is more than 3000 feet long, with a deep end that descends 115 feet. Sitting seaside at a resort in Chile, the pool required nearly five years to build and cost $1.6 billion.

The Golden Nugget casino’s pool may take top honors as the scariest of the strange pools; it gives you the feeling of swimming with the sharks, without actually swimming next to them … Don’t worry: There’s clear glass between you and the sharks.
If you’ve got an idea for the pool of your dreams, don’t be shy when discussing it with businesses like Scenic Landscaping LLC, who can design and execute your ideas as well as give some input themselves.
