Dingli is a town situated in the Western region of Malta at one of the highest points at 250m above sea level, having a population of 3608 people in an area of 5.7km². From Dingle Cliffs you will find breathtaking views of Verdala Palace, Buskett Gardens and when looking out to sea you will see the Island of Filfla and the surrounding sea.
Dingli was named after the English knight of the Order of St John Sir Thomas Dingley who owned most of the land in the area. The parish of Dingli was established in 1678 and was considered to be a safe area for the knights since it was impossible for pirates to land due to the high cliffs.
Whilst in Dingli make sure to visit Buskett Gardens which is popular with the Maltese families for strolling around and picnics. Also in the area is Verdala Palace which was built by Cardinal Grand Master de Verdalle. It was strategically located so to be able to see the whole Island and is now the Summer residence of the President of Malta.
Dingli’s property market has grown in recent years with a number of new apartment blocks being developed and is one of the few places in the countryside which is still affordable.
