As Trapani is situated on the sea cost you do not need to go far to find a nice beach to enjoy sun and water. In fact it has several beaches so you can choose whatever your mood is today.
Let us start from the harbour in Old Town and very west point of it – Museo Civico Torre de Ligny. There you can find a little rocky beach which is surprisingly loved by locals. You even may not find it if you don’t know where to look for. The beach itself is situated along the city wall on big flat stones.
Several steps away to right there is another small rocky beach called Mura Tramontana. We found it amazingly beautiful in it’s own way. It feels it in very centre of Trapani but together has a breathtaking views to sea and kind of sandy beach among stones. These two beaches are small but in very convenient location – only few steps from narrow Old Town streets.
Mostly visited and sandiest public beach is a few steps away from Piazza Garibaldi, at the Municipio or main Post Office. Just look for a Garibaldi statue and go throuh it – you will face the beach. The beach itself is quite clean, has enough place to lay your towel and incredibly clear water. As far as you go into the water it will be no higher than your chin. You will find a plenty of fishes swimming next to you. And if you are lucky enough you will find a crab.
Next to it there is a private beach – Lido Paradiso. Here you have to pay for entrance but you may rent sunlounges and umbrellas. They even have a bar.
All of public Trapani beaches do not have showers. If you want to find a great beach with warm water, lounges, umbrellas and a shower for 1 euro – do not hesitate to visit San Vito lo Capo. You will find all of it there. But you will definitely find more peole there as well.
