Did you know that the largest man-made pool in the world is located in the middle of a desert and was also the most expensive pool ever built? It cost $5.5 million dollars. Amazing, right?
Do you know where we need to travel to in order to swim here?
A tricky one this time, it is Egypt.
A bit more about it:
Citystars Sharm El Sheikh includes 1.2 million sqm of beautiful Crystal Lagoons and 22 kms of white sandy beaches, not to mention the largest Crystal Lagoon on the planet today covering an area 120,000 m2.
Opened in 2015, the Citystars Sharm El Sheikh lagoon is officially the largest man-made body of water in the world. And beyond its size, this vast pool is remarkable for its location in the middle of the Sinai desert — three miles inland from the famous Sharm El Sheikh resort town.
The saltwater supply comes from otherwise unusable desert aquifers, and takes several weeks to fill up. The $5.5 million beach-fringed lagoon is part of an exclusive gated community, and while it’s declared at 30.9 acres, Guinness World Records’ official measurement puts it at 23.9 acres — still comfortably taking the crown from the next biggest pool.
Great to add onto an itinerary to Egypt!
