On the Western coast of Malta, off the village of Dingli, are located Dingli cliffs, which are the highest point of Malta, at around 253 metres above sea-level. Back in the days, the cliffs were also seen as natural forts, as no attacker could approach the island from the West side, due to their impressive height. When viewed from the sea, whilst cruising with a boat, the sight is majestic, on the other hand, from the top of the cliffs, the view is breathtaking, overlooking the small terraced fields below, the open sea, and Filfla, the small uninhabited island just across.
