According to Siegfried Radtke's KG 54 history, on the night of 7 April, 12 Ju 88 of I./KG 54 took off from Catania for a dawn attack on British troops »an der Akarit-Front«. In that case, you're probably looking for targets south of Akarit: there are several named settlements there if you look at Google Maps. I'd imagine that the main British advance would have been up the coastal road (now Highway P1).
