Dingli Cliffs are situated on the west coast of Malta about half a mile away from the small village of Dingli. The cliffs are very unspoiled and beautiful and showcase natural Malta at its best. At an impressive 250 meters above sea level, the cliffs provide a natural fortress to Malta as their imposing structure provides great views out to sea. Looking out from the cliffs on a clear day you get stunning vistas and can see the small and uninhabited Isle of Filfla. There are also great views of inland Malta, and from the cliffs you can see Buskett Gardens and Verdala Palace. Perhaps the best view of the cliffs though, is the view from out at sea and it is definitely worth taking an island cruise.
It is a great place to visit to sit and enjoy a picnic and take a gentle stroll. Visitors to the cliffs should be careful near the cliff edge as there are no barriers. If you are visiting later in the day, it is a lovely place to watch the sunset and infact often many nervous men chose this as a place to propose! The romantic chapel of St Mary Magdelene sits elegantly on the cliff side and is recognised as being the highest point on Malta. The Cliffs Restaurant on the cliff side serves great food made with local produce and has excellent views. The restaurant is especially good to visit in the winter months when it can get cooler and more windy on the cliffs.
You can reach the cliffs by car, and if you are travelling by car there are some lovely vista points along the way. Alternatively, the Arriva public buses serve the cliffs and the cliffs are also a stop off on the sightseeing bus that cruise the different sites on the island.
If you like to appreciate the fresh air and beautiful natural scenery then we definitely recommend a trip to Dingli Cliffs!
