SCENIC WALKS ON THE EDGE OF MALTA AT DINGLI CLIFFS
Situated on the southwest coast of Malta, Dingli Cliffs are the highest land mass on the Maltese Islands, some 250 meters above sea level. The cliffs stretch form Bahrija to the area above Blue Grotto, overlooking open sea and the tiny uninhabited island of Filfla. The geological layers of Malta’s sedimentary rock are clearly visible in the exposed edges of the cliffs. The impressive height of the cliffs served as a natural defence from pirate attacks and other invasions on the islands southern coastline.
Enjoy a breath of fresh air by taking a @maltasegway tour of Dingli Cliffs. View Filfla & the blue grotto & learn about its history. 🏞️😀🌲🌞🍂— WowMalta Tips (@WowMalta) September 5, 2017
As you walk beyond the Dingli Aviation Radar you will find the remote Chapel of St Mary Magdalene, a simple yet charming limestone structure on the cliff's edge built in 1646. The prehistoric network of cart ruts run from Siggiewi and stop abruptly at the edge of the Dingli Cliffs. Similar to train tracks, they are pairs of sunken grooves in the limestone landscape whose origin and purpose remain a mystery. The cliffs are particularly attractive at sunset as this remarkable area offers spectacular views of the Mediterranean sea and an opportunity to hike in the fresh air. Spread beyond Dingli village and near San Anton Gardens, Dingli Cliffs can be easily reached by car or Malta’s public transport from Valletta and Rabat.
