Located just above the Canada-US border the City of White Rock slopes steeply down to Semiahmoo Bay in the Georgia Strait. Well away from the north shore mountains, it receives considerably less rainfall than other parts of Greater Vancouver.

The city is named after a large granite boulder that was left on the beach after the retreat of the last ice-age. The rock used to be kept white by the droppings of seabirds, but is now kept freshly painted by the city.

A trip to White Rock can easily fill the better part of a day. It will take you approximately one hour to get there from Bridgeport SkyTrain Station. When you arrive you can enjoy a stroll along the 2 kilometer promenade and out onto the ½ kilometer long pier for some great views across the water and back towards the hillside homes of White Rock.

Take some time to explore the White Rock Museum located in the historic 1913 railroad station near the pier (check their website for hours). Later you can cross the road and browse through the many quaint specialty and gift stores that parallel the beach.

For lunch or dinner you will probably find it hard to choose from among the many small eateries across from the beach. White Rock beach is a perfect place to enjoy some delicious fish and chips. You won't be disappointed.

Rated 4.8 out of 5White Rock Beach Star Rating

5 Star Rating Beautiful beach, looks really good, shore length and the water level changes from season to season, awesome view of mountains and sea. There is also a fishing box connected to the rope from which you can go fishing, I tried and found a carb, but left it in the sea as this is just a fun activity. It's a good place to bring kids especially during Summer 🌞🏝️ the vibe of the place changed completely during evening, the lights in white rock bridge looks really amazing, it's a best idea to stay till the evening and enjoy the view and lighting. There are some eateries and restaurants near the road with a beautiful view, when you are with your buddies or with your loved ones it's a great feeling.

5 Star Rating Nearest beach where I live from. Always goes there with friends, during day, evening and even mid night. A place that welcome everytime no matter what's the mood, it will change it or boost it. Midnight is fun and calming as it's not crowded and very calm. The sound of waves is so pleasing.

5 Star Rating Park at the other end of the beach ( east end) $7 all day instead of the city gouging $7 an hour. Ulies has a scratch kitchen and a Icelandic Pilsner Beer which is yum. Scoops ice cream is the place to go for a scoop. walk way west and find some awesome rock paintings.
