White Pine Beach is a picturesque lake located on Sasamat Lake in Belcarra Park. During the summer months visitors enjoy swimming in the warm water of Sasamat Lake. There are also good hiking trails and picnic facilities
This Greater Vancouver park has the only inland lake surrounded by mountains that you can get to solely by public transit during the summer months. Access is gained by taking the C26 shuttle bus from Port Moody Station on the Millennium Line. You can get within a 15 minute walk from the beach any time of year with the 181 or 182 bus.
The beach area is sandy and the drop off is gradual making this a perfect spot for swimming or just relaxing on the beach. The water can get quite warm during the summer months which helps make this a very popular destination for locals. The parking lots can fill up quickly. Of course that is not an issue if you are coming by bus.
The surrounding forests are populated with Douglas-fir, western hemlock, western red cedar, and Pacific silver fir adding to the west-coast setting. There is an easy to hike trail that will take you around the entire lake and to a couple of hillside lookouts. You can find a detailed description and map at .
A concession stand open during the summer months means you can always get something to eat without leaving the park.
