Centerville Beach (see link for map), five miles west of the Victorian Village of Ferndale, is a 9-mile stretch of sand surrounded by picturesque dairy country. On this secluded beach you can marvel at the impressive sandstone cliffs, view wildlife and birds, and even see mother whales migrating with their young in April and May when they swim closer to land.
This is an ideal spot for a family picnic, to bring your dog, ride horses along the beach, beachcomb, have a beach bonfire, or simply take in the magnificent beauty of the windswept Northern California coastline.
Help us keep this beach beautiful and dog-friendly:
