What is the largest swimming pool in the world?

The previous record holder was a swimming pool located at the San Alfonso del Mar resort in Chile. The builder of that swimming pool is ambitious and has broken its own record. Their newest endeavor is part of an exclusive community located in Egypt. The swimming pool is free formed in shape with approximate dimensions of 2474 feet in length and 525 average width.  Those dimensions translate into 1,298,885 square feet of surface area. Swimming one length of this pool would be equivalent to swimming about 15 lengths of an Olympic size swimming pool.

Information on the depth is not available but let's suppose the average depth is 4 feet. If using that figure this swimming pool would hold a whopping 30,652,860 gallons of water. We will update as more information becomes available.
