Beach

Mackay Harbour has been constructed by building two 800 m long breakwaters out from the beach, enclosing nearly 1 km2 of protected harbour. Tucked in at either end of the harbour are two pockets of sand; the northern (1116) is a 100 m long, steep beach wedged up against the northern breakwater. The area is inside an authorisation area therefore is not public access.

General

While these beaches are both calm, only the northern beach is suitable for swimming.
