Memorial Day weekend has begun and you may be one of many who will be spending the weekend at a sunny beach or poolside. Well, take a look at this pool…called The Crystal Lagoon, it’s the world’s largest outdoor pool and you’ll find it at the San Alfonso del Mar resort in Algarrobo, Chile.

A half mile long, it’s filled with 66 million gallons of water!

There are smaller pools within this gigantic man-made pool…

…which is actually larger than 20 Olympic-size pools put together!

A computer-controlled suction and filtration system keep the pool filled with water that comes directly from the sea.

Not only is this the world’s largest outdoor pool, it’s also the world’s deepest, going down 115 feet.
