It is famed for an infinity pool enjoying panoramic sea views, colourful sunsets and a relaxed atmosphere. It also hosts a number of international DJs in the summer months at night, with a capacity of up to 4000 people.

The Café del Mar franchise was brought to Malta in the summer of 2013 and it is located in Qawra Point, San Pawl il-Bahar. Café Del Mar originally is a small cafe in Ibiza famed for its world renowned chill out music and the flocking of tourists enjoying cocktails during the sunset.
