“Just a average beach”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Really nothing special to say about this.

A rather average beach starting at the foot of Larnaca Airport runway so great to have planes landing right over your head.

However, the opposite end to the beach is covered in sea weed and generally looks to be in a very sorry state.

Has some restaurants the airport side.

NOTE: The Avenue along the beach is having major works and walking or indeed driving along here can be a challenge. From our visit (End of March) works looks to be way off completion probably another 2 months at least.

If you are going to visit then stick to the Airport side of the beach as the other end is very dirty.

Has plenty of parking.

“Not much doing in March but improvements afoot”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

This beautiful bit of beach has been looking a bit tired in recent years & in need of a bit of love. It is now getting some attention with a new access causeway road, esplanade & cycle way from Phinikoudes all the way out. This should give a shot in the arm to the whole area & benefit the beachfront restaurants too.

“Massive drainage works.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

There are extensive drainage works all along Mackenzie Beach at the moment. When we drove past yesterday there were large concrete blocks barricading off the best part of the beach. There was no obvious access.

These drainage works have been going on for at least 3 months, if not more and they do not look as if they will be finished soon.

Access to all of the businesses from the fishing harbour to the end of Mackenzie Beach is perilous, if not downright dangerous.

If you want a good beach, avoid the road works and go further around Larnaca Bay to Voroklini.
