Italian Press Celebrates San Alfonso del Mar by Crystal Lagoons®

One of Italy’s most renowned newspapers, Corriere della Sera, has praised San Alfonso del Mar. Having released a video, the media outlet explores the immense turquoise lagoon by Crystal Lagoons®, highlighting its characteristics that transform it into a pioneering, unique amenity.

Located on the coast of Chile, in Algarrobo, the pristine waters of the lagoon span over half a mile and 20 acres in total. These dimensions made it the Guinness World Record for being the largest crystalline lagoon on the planet, until 2015, when another Crystal Lagoons amenity in Sharm El Sheik, Egypt, was inaugurated. To date, this latest development has maintained the world record.

A new revolution

San Alfonso del Mar was the first project in the world to employ the firm’s innovative technology, which quickly transformed the development into the “most successful second home resort in the southern hemisphere.”

The turquoise lagoon positively impacts the area, not only by creating an eye-catching and safe environment for swimming and other water sports, but it also offers spectacular views and numerous opportunities for recreational activities and walks. As a consequence, San Alfonso del Mar has transformed and revitalized the entire community.

Today, having revolutionized the real estate world for 10 years, the firm is now transforming city life with its Public Access Lagoons™, also known as PAL™. These monumental crystalline lagoons, which are surrounded by white sand beaches, retail and gastronomic services, can be accessed via ticketed-entry. In this way, Crystal Lagoons brings a piece of the ocean to the heart of the city, creating beach life in urban surroundings, much like an English architect did 200 years ago, when he introduced small forests into the city of London, which we know as city parks.
