The first FREE eco-tours in Malta!
The tours are based on a Pay what it’s worth basis to suit everyone’s budget. We want to provide the visitor with the most enjoyable free tour, and at the end, the visitor decides if and how much to tip.
“The Interpretation Centre with a free entrance. Planned, Built and Managed by a private local company. A New Concept…Local Produce.”
Visit THE CLIFFS Interpretation Centre, along one of the most panoramic viewpoints of the southwest coast of the Maltese Islands and experience the unique blend of ecology, history and culture. Enjoy the quietude throughout a typical winter day whilst watching the last remaining shepard roaming the garrigue ground….Or observe a glistening sunset from the decking of the centre during hot summer evenings…
The full meaning of interpretation, an innovative means of communication can be lived through at the Centre from thematic displays, information panels and temporary visual exhibitions. The gastronomical experience of the food that is served on a daily basis at the Interpretation Centre highlights the natural flora species richness, whilst amalgamating the historical and cultural traditions retained throughout the years by locals. The food that is served and the provision of local produce highlight sustainable harvest and education, providing for another innovative means of communication.
The new concept also includes the presentation of audiovisuals and the organisation of guided walks along the Dingli Cliffs area, where visitors can enjoy not only the panoramic views and discover archaeological remains, but also encounter some of the total 1200 flora species that have been recorded in the Maltese Islands.
The building itself has been sustainable from the construction phase with an efficient use of energy, water, aspect and sun-orientation. Even the location of the building is in the middle of the largest Special Area of Conservation (SAC) in the Maltese Islands. La Pinta Ltd. which has planned, build and daily manages the operation of THE CLIFFS Interpretation Centre is a private company from the nearby village of Dingli, with various links to traditions and history of the local village and its surroundings. It continuously strives to reconcile environmental, economic and social goals whilst enhancing the conservation of nature and protection of species.
