“Check the Tide Tables!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

This popular beach has a nice change/ bathroom area, great adventure playground and lots of free parking. It is a very shallow beach and you can walk for about 1/2 km and still not get to water deep enough for swimming if you go at low tide. The best time is within an hour before or after high tide when the water has come up over the hot sand. Swim shoes are a good idea as there are rocks and seaweed at times but the beach is a coarse sand and great for kids.
There are big trees for shade and a large open mowed field for pick up baseball or soccer games. On a clear day you get a wonderful view of Mt. Baker.

“Beach has it all!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

Whether you are after calm warm waters, sand, shaded area or a food outlet, Centennial Beach has it all. Ample parking too.

I have been going to this beach since I was a teenager. When the tide starts coming in the water is warmed by the sun-exposed sands. You can wander out and walk on the hard packed sand. Collect shells and rocks at the shore.

“too many noisy teens”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

The beach is rather distant and when the tide is out the water is even further distant. It is great for sand castle making though. The new concession stand helps but it is over-priced.

“Great beach in sunny Tsawwassen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

I have lived here for over 42 years. This beach has a tidal flow for miles on end. When the tide comes in over the dark sand it heats up and makes swimming enjoyable. The funny thing is that it never get deaper than about 2-3 feet making it a hotspot for smaller kids and families.
