Sicily in April - and what's Lido di Marausa like?

I am going to Sicily in April. What will the weather be like - any chance of going on a beach/swimming or will it be too cold? Do you have to pay to go on beaches in Sicily or are they all public beaches?

Also, does anyone know anything about Lido di Marausa? Does it have a nice beach?

April is shoulder season, so you’ll be visiting before the crowds!

By April the wildflowers explode all over Sicily! Many enjoy time on beaches in April but courageous swimmers begin to brave the bracing waters.

Temperatures in April will be mild. Temperatures in April will range from 55-65F in Palermo, and 46-68F in Catania.

Here are average temperatures and precipitation amounts for both Palermo and Catania.

Palermo’s Averages:

Catania’s Averages:

There are both free and public beaches.

Lido di Marausa in the province of Trapani??

It’s between Trapani and Marsala. The western shores of Trapani have good beaches, but you will really be early in the year to fully appreciate this beach area.

Here’s a photo!
