San Alfonso Del Mar, A spectacular lagoon

A spectacular lagoon


It is more than 1,000 yards (1 kilometer) long, covers 20 acres (8,1 hectare), has a 115 ft (35 meter) DEEP END and holds 66 million gallons (249 million liters) of water.

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:

Hard to imagine? We are talking about nothing less than the equivalent to 6,000 familiar 8-meters-long pools.

Apart from its large size, the lagoon has another spectacular feature: its waters have the transparency and intense turquoise color of tropical seas. This has been made possible thanks to an advanced technology (*) developed by the company Crystal Lagoons., which is able to collect ocean water and keep it in perfect condition. But this is not all that it is there: during summer, the lagoon further maintains a pleasant temperature that borders 26ºC, nine degrees more than the nearby sea temperature. The success and exclusivity of this technology has enabled Crystal Lagoons to export its know-how to major international real-estate projects.

In this way, at San Alfonso an unbelievable goal is achieved: feeling the enjoyment of the Caribbean Sea right at the Chilean central coast.
