The Lagoons is a real estate development that is under construction in Dubai , United Arab Emirates . It is located throughout Dubai.
The 40-hectare lagoon, part of the US$7 billion (Dh25.7bn) Mohammed bin Rashid City project, will dwarf a 12-hectare lagoon in the Egyptian resort of Sharm El Sheikh, which now holds the title, according to Guinness World Records.
The developer Crystal Lagoons has already started work and hopes to finish it in 2020 – the deadline for the whole project.
The lagoon has been designed to include wide beaches with a Caribbean feel, and offer swimming and other water sports in clear, filtered water.
