Most backyard swimming pools are not large enough for water parks, but the San Alfonso del Mar resort in Chile has the world’s largest swimming pool, measuring 12.2m in length and covering 3.5 acres. It holds the record for the largest swimming pool in the world and offers activities such as windsurfing, kayaking, and scuba diving. Home swimming pools can hold up to 30,000 gallons and cost between $50,000 and $75,000 USD.

Some lucky homeowners have backyards large enough to accommodate a sizable swimming pool, perhaps 20m (6.1ft) wide and 40m long. However, these generous dimensions are not enough for water parks, where the pools are much larger. Technically, a swimming pool can be as large as the space it is meant to fill, as demonstrated by a swimming pool at the San Alfonso del Mar resort in Algarrobo, Chile. This swimming monster measures 12.2m in length and has a maximum depth of 3,323m. m (1,013 ft). This is roughly equivalent to 11.5 Olympic-sized swimming pools laid out end to end. It covers 3.5 acres and holds the record for the largest swimming pool in the world. Visitors to San Alfonso del Mar can indulge in activities such as windsurfing, kayaking and scuba diving, all in the safety of the resort’s gigantic swimming pool.
