Have you ever imagined swimming in a pool with no less than 250 million liters of water? Yes, there is water! And know that this pool exists and is among one of the largest pools in the world.
And did you know that there are others like this world out there? In today’s post we tell you where these aquatic giants are. Maybe you spend your next summer vacation on one of them, right?
Largest swimming pools in the world
The largest pools in the world are, for the most part, located on the seashore of countries in South America, Asia and the Middle East. And without wanting to give spoilers, but already warning, our Chilean brothers have a real passion for giant pools.
Just take a look at this ranking.
7th position – Piscine Alfred Nakache – France
Occupying seventh place in the ranking is the French swimming pool Alfred Nakache, located in the city of Toulouse.
The coolest thing here is that this is the only public swimming pool in the ranking, where children can enter for free and adults pay a small symbolic fee for using the space.
The Alfred Nakache Pool is 7500 m² (150 meters long and 50 meters wide).
6th position – Dreamworld Fun Lagoon – Pakistan
With a capacity of 7.5 million liters of water, the Dreamworld Fun Lagoon pool is located in Pakistan, within a resort in the city of Karachi.
The curiosity here is that this is the largest freshwater pool in the world, that is, it does not use sea water.
Dreamworld Fun Lagoon has a series of attractions that promise to amuse visitors, such as artificial waves, pedal boats, kayaks and toboggan runs.
5th position – Laguna Bahia – Chile
Chile is the fifth largest swimming pool in the world. Very close to another giant, Laguna Bahia is on the edge of the sea inside a luxurious resort, offering a complete experience for those who want to enjoy a relaxing vacation.
There are 14 thousand m² of pure and fresh water to cool off. In addition to swimming, visitors can also practice water sports in the pool, such as windsurfing, stand up paddle, among others.
4th position – Las Brisas – Chile
Chile is still here. This time to present the fourth largest pool in the world, Las Brisas.
Located in a luxury condominium, Las Brisas makes a perfect integration with the sea, providing one of the most beautiful landscapes built by man.
But besides being very beautiful, Las Brisas impresses by the numbers. The giant occupies a space of 20 thousand m², equivalent to 16 Olympic swimming pools, filled with properly filtered and treated sea water.
3rd position – MahaSamutr – Thailand
Thailand is well known when it comes to natural beauty, but the country also has attractions built by human hands, such as the Mahasamutr pool, the third largest pool in the world.
Located in a country club, within a luxury resort, in the city of Hua Hin, the giant pool has an area of 67 thousand m².
Surrounded by beach sand, Mahasamutr offers much more than just a dip for visitors. There you can also practice water sports, such as kayaks and catamarans, for example.
2nd position – San Alfonso Del Mar – Chile
The second largest pool in the world is Chilean (we told you they liked the pool!).
San Alfonso Del Mar was once considered the largest pool in the world by the Guinness Book, but ended up losing its place to the first position that you will see soon after.
This South American giant has a capacity for 250 million liters of water.
Supplied by the waters of the Pacific Ocean, the San Alfonso pool is clean, filtered and slightly heated by a high-tech computer system /
1st position – Crystal Lagoon – Egypt
A real oasis! That’s how we can describe the largest pool in the world. Located in the middle of the Sinai desert in Egypt, the Crystal Lagoon pool is located inside a luxurious resort in the city of Sharm El Sheikh
Inaugurated in 2015, the Egyptian pool occupies the position of the largest pool in the world registered in the Guinness Book, displacing the Chilean pool.
To give you a brief idea of the size of this pool, just compare it with the equivalent of 27 football fields. That is, it occupies an area of around 121 m².
Largest swimming pool in Brazil
The largest swimming pool in Brazil is located in Cuiabá, in the state of Mato Grosso. The 20,000 m² pool was built by the same company responsible for the Chilean pool at San Alfonso Del Mar, the second largest in the world. The Brazilian version is inside the Brasil Beach Home resort.
The northeast of Brazil also has huge pools, which classify them as the largest in the country, such as the Sehrs pool, located in a resort in Rio Grande do Norte. The potiguar pool has 10 thousand m², distributed among jacuzzis, wet bar and mini slides
Ceará and Pernambuco also enter the list of the largest pools in Brazil. The Beach Park Acqua Resort, in Fortaleza and the Beach Class Resort Muro Alto, in Porto de Galinhas, have swimming pools of 4 thousand and 3 thousand m², respectively.
When it comes to public swimming pool, the title is CERET’s swimming pool (Centro Esportivo e Recreativo do Trabalho), located on the east side of the city of São Paulo. This is the largest public swimming pool in Latin America, with a capacity of 5 million liters of water.
Deepest pool in the world
It is not just in length and square meters that the largest swimming pools in the world live. Some of them are also giants in terms of depth, as is the case of the Deepspot pool, which in a free translation could be called something like a « deep place ».
The pool was recently opened on November 21, 2020, and is already considered the deepest pool in the world, 45 meters deep.
Deepspot is located in Poland, in the city of Mszczonów, 40 km from Warsaw.
With a capacity of 8 thousand liters of water, the pool is intended for professional and amateur divers. The place will even be used for diving lessons.
One of the most unusual parts is the rooms overlooking the interior of the pool.
Until the opening of Deepspot, the owner of the deepest pool in the world was the Y-40 Deep Joy pool, 40 meters deep, located in Italy.
And then, do you already know which of these pools to visit during your next vacation?
