The Dingli Cliffs
I love staring out to infinity, I adore watching seas and oceans - so I seized the opportunity to do this on Malta too.
Here's my Dingli Cliffs experience...
253 m is the tallest point there is on Malta, but it's not the size that matters - but the stunning views!
In order to enjoy the views, you have to travel to southern Malta to the Dingli Cliffs.
It's fantastic, refreshing and you must never leave this out of your Malta trip.
Looking out from the Dingli Cliffs
It as terribly cold up there. Despite being the month of May and despite having enjoyed nice warm sunny weather almost every day, the Dingli Cliffs were cold and windy.
The Dingli Cliffs are a long natural fence running along Malta's southern coast.
How to get to the Dingli cliffs?
From Sliema, I had to take a bus to Rabat in southern Malta and swap for another bus (for which I had to wait about an hour), which brought me down to the cliffs.
The rocky ground
The downside of visiting the Dingli Cliffs was that there wasn't really much to do there. At most, I could enjoy it for 15-20 minutes, the wind was terribly piercing strong...
A lonely boat "up there". Certainly it was dragged up here by a lorry.
One of the least expected things to find up there at the top of the cliffs.
One you're up there, you can visit a local restaurant (there were a few) for burning time, because it can take ages for the bus to come.
I had to waste another hour or so for my bus to return and this time take me back - all the way to Sliema.
My bus. I was hoping for a vintage xarabank, but this is what I got.
