Crystal Lagoons develops its second world's largest lagoon16 September, 2014 / News
While Crystal Lagoons, company of scientist Fernando Fischmann, is developing the world’s largest crystalline lagoon, with 40 acres of turquoise water in the “Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum City – District One” project of Dubai, in parallel is building what will be the world’s second largest crystalline lagoon.
This is the Playa Turquesa project in Santa Cruz de la Sierra in Bolivia, with a crystalline lagoon that will cover an area of 12.6 hectares. This lagoon will exceed the one located in the Citystars Sharm El Sheikh project in Egypt, which is currently the world’s largest manmade lagoon.
The real estate project Playa Turquesa is located in the most exclusive residential area of Santa Cruz and overlooks parks and sports sites. Like all projects from Crystal Lagoons, the crystal clear lagoon is suitable for swimming and performing all kinds of water sports without engine, such as kayaking, laser and windsurfing, among others, providing recreational and sporting alternatives in a safe context.
The real estate development has a total area of 180 hectares, in which are included 1,400 lands with areas of 500 to 1200 meters each and will be a gated community with three controlled access. It will also have docks, beach areas, several recreational amenities, club house, gym and sites for development of various water sports.
Project developers say Playa Turquesa is the most successful project in recent years in Santa Cruz given its sales rhythms.
