San Alfonso del Mar, Crystal Lagoons’ first lagoon continues to captivate the world

24 April, 2023 / News

San Alfonso del Mar in Algarrobo is an iconic project for Crystal Lagoons because it was the first development in the world to incorporate a crystalline lagoon with Crystal Lagoons® technology. It marked a milestone, and its success enabled the innovation to expand to five continents, becoming an essential amenity for real estate, tourism, and urban development projects.

Its20-acre crystalline lagoon, equivalent to 6,000 traditional pools, was made possible only thanks to the sustainable technology created by Crystal Lagoons, which has been patented in more than 190 countries. This feature, in addition to its length of 1,013 meters and 250 million liters of seawater, earned it the Guinness World Record in 2007. In 2015 Crystal Lagoons opened Citystars Sharm El Sheikh, in Egypt, which with 30-acre surpassed San Alfonso de Mar and is now the largest crystalline lagoon in the world.

Since its opening, San Alfonso del Mar has quickly become the “most successful second home resort in the southern hemisphere.” Its turquoise lagoon revolutionized the local landscape, not only by providing residents and visitors with an attractive and safe area for aquatic activities but also by offering spectacular views which in turn allowed for the development of other resort and relaxation-based businesses and facilities centered around the new sea-side resort lagoon.

San Alfonso del Mar was originally conceived as a second home project, with 400 apartments. However, by incorporating Crystal Lagoons® technology, the success was so great that it was decided to expand the real estate development reaching 1,400 apartments, and even doubling the original sales prices.
