White Rock is located in the southwest corner of the Lower Mainland, 45 kilometres from Vancouver and only five minutes to the Canada/US border. White Rock is a seaside community clustered around an 8 km sandy beach and the warm shallow waters of Semiahmoo Bay, you're sure to find that perfect spot to pitch your umbrella. Because of the moderate climate, White Rock is a preferred retirement spot.
The “white rock”, from which the community is named, is located on the West Beach. The rock maintains its pristine white colour with help from staff from the City of White Rock. Standing more than 4 metres high and weighing a reported 486 tonnes, the rock is likely a glacial deposit left behind when the glaciers receded thousands of years ago.
The waterfront includes a promenade that is two and a half kilometres long, fully accessible to the disabled and parents with strollers. The heritage pier, train station and colourful sidewalk cafes create a special ambience throughout the area.
White Rock’s historic pier was originally built in 1914 as a dock for the coastal steamships that arrived when the Great Northern Railway began operation. Restored some 70 years later, the pier is still a customs port of entry for small crafts, but it’s days of welcoming steamships are long gone. Stretching out 470m/1542 ft into the ocean, the landmark pier is a destination unto itself. Walk to the end to see local fishermen’s daily catches and bask in the impressive views of the coastal mountains and the San Juan Islands. Take an after dinner stroll to see breathtaking sunsets and feel the ocean’s warm breeze.
