Dingli Cliffs

Experience sunset splendour

What our islands lack for natural abundance on land, they certainly make up for in sky and sea, and the setting sun is one of the most enchanting rituals of nature. The play of colours from sunset to dusk brings every day to a spectacular end.

The cliffs at the westernmost edge of Dingli are the perfect location to enjoy a stunning sunset all year round. The silence of the rural surroundings and the open views on the never-ending sea are the right tonic after the day’s hustle and bustle.

 The imposing Dingli Cliffs may be the highest point in Malta but the sight of the burning sun dipping into the vast blue waters will make you feel tiny with awe. The sky is a new canvas every time: sometimes it presents a seamless orange-to-indigo gradient, on other days spots of clouds add a little dramatic effect.

It all happens amazingly fast and yet, the moment is so tranquil and graceful that it seems to hang there for an eternity.

Sunset changes with the seasons, is a reliable source to check the exact time for when you are planning to visit.
