Dingli Cliffs are Malta's highest point from where you may gaze at the splendour of the Mediterranean Sea. It is a typical garigue habitat, largely rocky with thin patches of soil on which only shrubs and herbaceous plants may thrive. There are also several cart-ruts, many of which mysteriously terminate at the cliff edge. The St. Mary Magdalene Chapel was built in 1646; the inscription above the door reads “non gode l'immunita' “, meaning that wrong doers may not use this building to escape justice. The cliffs afford an excellent view of lonely Filfla – a islet that owes its name to its outline that resembles the shape of a pepper fruit – of felfel in the Arabic language. Filfla used to be used by the Royal Air Force for target practise, forever scarring its shape. Filfla is the home of many rare and endemic species, notably the Filfla wall-lizard (Podarcis filfolensis filfolensis) and is now a nature reserve;permission to access it is only granted for educational and scientific purposes.
