New Guinness World Record for 'World's Largest Crystalline Lagoon'

Purification and filtration innovator Crystal Lagoons has set a new Guinness World Record for the ‘World’s Largest Manmade Crystal Clear Lagoon’, breaking its own 2007 record for the iconic 8-hectare San Alfonso del Mar crystal lagoon in Chile.

The new record holder is the 12.5-hectare lagoon incorporated in the Citystars Sharm El Sheikh tourist development in Egypt. Located in the middle of the desert in one of the country’s most popular tourist coastal areas, the project had a total investment of $US5.5 billion.

Located on more than 750 hectares of land, the lagoon’s crystal clear water is fed from underground wells. The company is already on track to smash its own record, with a 40-hectare ‘mega lagoon’ planned for the Mohammed Bin Rashid City District One development in Dubai.
