Imagine a swimming pool as big as a football field. Think bigger. Twenty seven times bigger! The swimming pool was built on the Sinai Peninsula three kilometers from the Red Sea. Just check in at the Sharm El Sheik resort in the City of Stars, put on your bathing suit and head for the water. Completed in 2015, this 30 acre pool holds the Guinness World’s Record and holds 62 million gallons of water. Compare that to the average backyard pool that contains about 25,000 gallons of water. It is 600 feet wide and 2,500 feet long big enough to sail a boat or wind surf. It cost $5.5 million to build and hosts tourists and residents alike in one of the oldest civilizations in the world.
