If you are a swimming-lover, perhaps swimming pools are familiar names. Swimming pools have always been a way to bring recreational aquatic areas to places that miles away from any lakes or beaches. Today, let's explore the top 7 biggest swimming pools in the world with Knowinsider.

7. Las Brisas, Chile

With a view to inclining to the Pacific Ocean, and directly adjacent to the Chilean sea, the brilliant blue of the waters of the Las Brisas pool often outdoes the blueness of the ocean. Although much smaller than the pools listed above, at just five acres, the pool is still big enough to accommodate 16 Olympic-sized swimming pools. The pool is part of the Las Brisas luxury condominium complex.
