Dingli Cliffs, Mgarr Village, Golden Bay

If you are visiting on a cruise ship take a look at our Shore Excursions listings

We start with a scenic drive along the coast road, en route you will pass St. Paul's and Xemxija Bay. Our first stop will be Ghajn Tuffieha & Golden Bay. Two beautiful beaches separated by a natural rock formation on which a 17th century tower stands. Here you can enjoy some fabulous panoramas of both bays.

We proceed via the farmers village of Mgarr and head towards the medieval city Mdina (visible from the road only), until we reach the area known as Buskett. We drive though Buskett Gardens and onto Dingli Cliffs. These cliffs are characterised by vertical or near-vertical rock faces rising from the sea to heights of up to 70-130m above sea level. Some of the steep slopes are terraced and this unique feature together with the expanse of the deep blue Mediterranean sea provide stunning views.

The final part of the tour includes a scenic drive through the area known as Girgenti. Girgenti is a shaded fertile valley renowned for its orchards and cultivated fields. Eco system here is Maquis so it is green all year round. Citrus and other fruit trees thrive in the valley beneath the surrounding ridge. This route will also take us via typical local villages before we reach the Blue Grotto.

Blue Grotto. This picturesque grotto and its neighboring system of sea caverns mirrors the brilliant phosphorescent colors of underwater flora. Boat trips, which take around 25 minutes allow you to explore these grottoes and sea caverns along this stretch of coast (the boat trip is not included in the overall price as it operates subject to weather conditions, allow eur8).

At this stage our tour comes to an end and we make our way back.
