Crystal Lagoons will beat its second Guiness World Record26 November, 2014 / News
Crystal Lagoons will achieve a new Guiness World Record with the world largest crystalline lagoon at the tourism development Citystars Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt. This lagoon will surpass the one at San Alfonso del Mar in Chile, which with 8 hectares was certified as the world’s largest manmade lagoon in 2007.
The massive 12.5-hectare lagoon is already in operation in the middle of the Egyptian desert and it is part of the first stage of this tourism development.
The project is located in a 750-hectare land site and considers a sum total of 12 crystalline lagoons, which are going to be part of the 100 hectares of crystalline water in the middle of the desert, using salt water from groundwater table in the desert that do not currently have an alternative use.
The tourism complex will have 30.000 residential units, hotels, golf fields, marinas, a museum and a shopping center in the Sharm El Sheikh water site. With an estimated investment of US$ 5.500 million, this was possible thanks to Crystal Lagoons’ technology that took water that had no other use and applied it to desert lands where no other development was possible. This provides real estate value to the development.
Likewise, Citystars Sharm El Sheikh is the first project at world level that will use the Crystal Lagoons’ technology for recreational and water desalinization purposes, using these resources to the supply the water of the complex.
