Dingli Cliffs

Walking further on from Ghar il-Kbir, the impressive Dingli Cliffs (exhibiting in some places all the geological layers of Malta’s sedimentary rock) are reached, from where the most spectacular views will leave the visitor breathless. The highest point on the Maltese islands, about 250 metres above sea level, is marked by the chapel of St Mary Magdalene, perched on the edge of these cliffs. Some dramatic sunsets can be also be enjoyed on late summer evenings. Dingli Cliffs stretch beyond Dingli as far as Ghar Lapsi and Blue Grotto. More enthusiastic walkers will find great scope for exploring the rough and virtually untouched countryside along the cliffs.
