I was more than just a little excited about the idea of booking a break in Malta. I had heard that not only does the country see some beautiful weather, but it also boasted a stunning landscape, particularly when it came to the sun setting at the end of the day.
It was an easy decision to make and in no time at all I found myself landing in Malta. I didn’t really have any idea of what I wanted to do whilst I was there, apart from head to the beach and relax. However, one place that I had heard was definitely worth a visit was Café del Mar.
Based at the larger Aquarium complex in Qawra, if there were three words that could sum up what Café del Mar is all about it would be sunset, cocktails and their infinity pool. These three words were enough to tempt me to head there for a day by the pool.
I arrived just before lunchtime and knew that the first thing that I needed to do was to book myself a sunbed. After all, if I wanted to get the most from my time here, then I needed to make sure that I had one of the best seats in the house. I had made a sunbed reservation before so it was all sorted on the day.
The sunbeds were not only a good price, but they were perfectly located too. I could sit down by the amazing infinity pool and just soak up every ounce of sunshine possible. As well as take in the stunning views that surrounded me too.
As the afternoon went by, I realised that the time had come to indulge myself in the famous food and cocktails that Café del Mar are known for. I have to say, the cocktails were amazing. They not only packed a punch, but they tasted great too, which isn’t always the easiest combination to achieve.
The food too was simply stunning. It arrived looking like something that belongs on Instagram (and believe me I did share it) but also tasting delicious too!
Realising that I had no plans for the rest of the day, I decided that there was no better way to spend the evening then lounging by the pool and taking in the amazing sunset across the water. I wasn’t disappointed. I made sure that I took plenty of photos too, just so that I could show everyone back home just how amazing it was to spend a day there.
So, if you haven’t been to Café del Mar yet, then you need to make sure you do. Whether you are staying in Malta for a week, for two or for even longer, this is the place to go when you want to really enjoy the unique beauty and charm that Malta has to offer. Spending a day by the pool was really refreshing while I soaked up in the sun and relaxed for the whole day.
