A hike to Dingli Cliffs

On my first Maltese trip, when my youngest daughter and I had met up on the island to visit my middle daughter, we had this crazy idea of walking to Dingli Cliffs from Rabat. In other words, we walked a third of the way across the island. Seeing it took us about three hours one way, it’s easy to envisage how small the main island of Malta is.

One of the great advantages of walking, was not missing anything on the way. We trudged past rocky fences and small villages with their churches taking centre stage, until we arrived at Dingli Cliffs. The cliffs were topped with boulders and dropped steeply into the Mediterranean Sea. All was quiet except for some sheep grazing between rocks on clumps of grass.

My youngest daughter and I still had the three hour return walk but like all return journeys, it had the magic of seeming to go much quicker.
