Bucketlisting: San Alfonso Del Mar, Chile

- DEDICATED POST -

Welcome to the second edition of Bucketlisting on this bright and cheery Monday morning. You just won’t believe what I’ve unearthed for you today! Let me take you all the way to San Alfonso del Mar, to a private resort in Algarrobo, Chile. (For those of you playing at home, it’s about 100kms west of the capital Santiago.)

If you’ve always wanted to swim in the sea, but haven’t been brave enough to try it out, then this is perfect for you. If you’re anything like me, I have a serious shark phobia. And no I’m not talking about Katy Perry’s quazi back-up dancer sharks at The SuperBowl. I mean, the real deal. Sometimes even when I’m in the water at the beach, my mind starts to play tricks on me—especially when the water gets really dark and cold, I start imagining that something just brushed past my legs or that I just saw a weird shadow move below me. Let’s just say swimming in the sea, would totally freak me out.

SAN ALFONSO DEL MAR SPOILS YOU WITH A 1000 METRE-LONG SEAWATER POOL…

Well, without having to brave the chilly Chilean waters, San Alfonso del Mar, spoils you with a 1000 metre-long seawater pool (covering about 20 acres in total) that stretches the length of the resort, which cost just under two billion dollars, and five years to build. Not only, does it hold the Guinness World Record for the world’s largest swimming pool, but because the water is pumped from the Pacific Ocean, filtered and treated, you can swim, snorkel, kayak and even yacht in the waters! (Check out the pictures below, they are amazing!)

IT HOLDS THE GUINNESS WORLD RECORD…

On top of that, they boast an additional eleven outdoor pools, and two extra indoor pools too. And judging from the pictures, they don’t do anything by halves. Now, how soon til my next holiday? Tick tock! MC
