Dingli by boat
This is probably one of the best options to admire the stunning view of the cliffs, the Filfla Island and the southern part of Malta.
I saw many boats passing while I was admiring the magnificent view of the cliffs, but due to the lack of time, we were not able to enjoy such a trip.

Arriving to Dingli
As we stayed in Qwara (in the northern part of Malta), Dingli was practically located on the other side of the island from our location.
The only recommended possibility to reach Dingli by public transportation was to go to Valletta and then from the Bus Terminal take the bus to Dingli.
There is no direct bus from the northern part of the island to Dingli.
Other possibility was to go to Rabat and from there see is there is a mean of transportation to Dingli.
It seemed quite complicated and, even more important, we needed a lot of time as it takes around 50min to go to Valletta and other 40-45min from Valletta to Dingli.
I actually gave up initial my plans to go to Dingli one morning, but our organizers made us a surprise after the visit to Rabat and stopped for a while to see the cliffs.

Yellow-Orange coloured busses all over Malta
In Valletta we took bus nr 81 to Dingli. The bus stops also at Buskett Garden.
From there we started our walk to Dingli Cliffs.
From the bus stop you have also a beautiful view on Verdala Palace
Each 30 minutes there is a bus (when you start from Valletta)

By bus or by car
It' s much easier to get to Dingli with a rented car, but you can also reach this off the beaten path place with the bus Nr. 81.
This bus starts in Valletta, but you can also catch it in Mosta, if you are coming from the north. That's what I did. The bus starts right next to the big church of Mosta.
I accidently stept out one after Buskett Gardens Stop, which was near to the Clapham Junctions. I thought it would be Dingli already....
Maybe you can also hitch-hike here on the countryside and have a ride in one of these great lorries!
