MacKenzies Beach is among the smallest beaches in the state and isn't consistently available. However, its close proximity to densely populated residential areas makes it relatively popular when it does appear.

Situated in a small cove nestled among the rocks on the south side of Mackenzies Point, 250 meters west of the point and 100 meters north of Tamarama surf club, MacKenzies spans about 50 meters at its best. It's always backed by rocks and faces a surf zone strewn with rocks, typically hosting at least one rip current. Therefore, caution is advised for swimmers.

MacKenzies is frequented by anglers, sunbathers, and waders rather than swimmers.
