Makenzy (Mackenzie) Beach is close to the Larnaka International Airport. It is a long coastline of about 1000 meters and its width is about 35 to 80 meters, with fine sand of different shades of brown and beige, as well as calm, clear and shallow waters and plenty of greenery.
Colored by the sapphire waters of the Mediterranean, Makenzy (Mackenzie) Beach is a refreshing break from the busy city life.
The story of the name of the coast began around the end of the 1940s when a Scottish resident of Larnaka named McKenzie, married to a Greek Cypriot from Larnaka, built for himself a home in this seaside area. Since then, everyone has begun to call the coast as "Makenzy (Mackenzie) ".
