Try taking a lap in this pool

Paradise you say...well it's not exactly your typical ocean. Pictured above (and below) is the world's largest pool. Measuring a whopping 1,000 yards, the pool attracts huge crowds to the San Alfonso del Mar resort at Algarrobo, on Chile's southern coast; it opened January 2008.

The pool also covers 20 acres, had a 115ft deep end and holds 66 million gallons of water. I find this fascinating and weird at the same time. Why build this large pool if you have a beach right there? Need another accolade? Well this pool is also part of the world's 15 largest objects.

So who's down to take a trip to Chile?!?!?!
