Sites in Malta for the 'Cliff Hangers'























Malta - blessed as it is with incredible stretches of Lower Coralline limestone cliffs, resulting from faults that occurred thousands of years ago. Its entire south coast is composed of cliffs that can either leave visitors awestruck, or inspire them to summit these rocks and overcome their intimidating majesty.

This is one of the many shots I took yesterday of our coast. Rock climbing in Malta is similar in capacity, in terms of the availability of cliffs, to diving. There was a group of climbers who had just finished. So I was a bit too late to get some shots of them going up and down this cliff. Well better luck next time!!.

I would guess, Dina, that climbers would enjoy scampering up and down these cliffs. Nice photography.

Hi Diana, I have climbed the slab on the right with Matt from Malta Activities and it was great fun! Did you know part of this is called motorcycle slabs and it was the scene of a display in 1954 when the Royal Marines belayed a motorcyle and its rider up the slab in a display to Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Phillip when they visited Malta! Your photo shows how lovely it is there.
