Swimming pool in the San Alfonso Del Mar' resort in Chile

World’s biggest … San Alfonso Del Mar’ resort in Chile

Just imagine binning off the day job and jetting away to relax in one of these shimmering beauties, hailed as being among the finest on the planet.

Like the image above of the world’s biggest swimming pool at the San Alfonso Del Mar resort in Chile.

It cost more than £700million to build, is eight hectares in surface area and holds a mind-boggling 66m gallons of water – so much you can even sail boats across it.

The San Alfonso features in a jaw-dropping new Twitter feed called   Pools Porn(not to be confused with, well, you can imagine).

Some sit atop mountains with stunning views, others hang over the edge of buildings or in the gardens of paradise hotels.
