Beaches & Seacoast Larnaca Mckenzie Beach - Blue Flag

Mckenzie Beach – Blue Flag

A hot top-spot on the island.

Located near to the site of Larnaka’s (Larnaca’s) old airport, the highly popular Mckenzie Beach is a 1 km long strip with fine sands of varying shades of brown and beige, calm, clear and shallow seawaters, and abundant greenery.

Facilities on the beach include toilets, showers, changing rooms, sun beds, umbrellas, dustbins and a host of cafes, bars, restaurants and clubs that line the strip, including some of the island’s top nightspots.

Lifeguards with lifesaving equipment and first aid services are stationed at the beach from June – October, 10:30 – 18:00.

Due to the beach’s location, it is ideal for plane spotting, whilst there is also a wide array of water sports on offer along the strip, children’s playgrounds, and outdoor exercise equipment.

Concerts are held on the seafront stage throughout the year, whilst arts fairs and stalls are also held along the strip. The main visitor attractions of Larnaka Salt Lake and the Hala Sultan Tekke mosque are nearby.

The beach attracts both families and younger crowds during the day, whilst at night it is a premium destination for clubbing.

Access to the beach is easy and safe by foot, bike, bus or car, with a large municipal car park servicing the beach, and many entry points with paths and paving leading to the beach and the establishments lining it.

The beach also offers disabled access.
