Welcome to White Rock

White Rock – A Beautiful City by the Sea

Few places are finer for watching a west coast sunset than White Rock’s splendid oceanfront promenade, as ferries from the mainland quietly sail towards the horizon. But if you plan to arrive in White Rock just before sundown, you’ll miss the chance to discover a dynamic seaside community that deserves at least a weekend of exploring, if not a full week. Flush with boutique shops, waterfront restaurants and vibrant crowds, White Rock is one of BC’s gems and should be a highlight of any visit to Metro Vancouver.

The city is clustered around an 8 km (5 mi) sandy beach and is lined by an oceanfront promenade that’s perfect year-round for strolling, shopping or people watching. It’s also bursting with dining options, from award-wining fine dining to local favourites, cafes and bistros. The city is famous for its pier that stretches 457 m (1,500 ft) into the shallow, warm waters of Semiahmoo Bay. White Rock is also easily identified by the large white rock that sits on the beach, a glacial deposit left behind when the glaciers receded thousands of years ago. The city may be named after a white rock, but it’s commendably green with plenty of open spaces. It’s kid-friendly too, with lots of activities for the little ones. After you watch the sunset, enjoy a live music performance at a White Rock live music venue or absorb live theatre at the White Rock local theatre.

Discover White Rock Arts & Culture and meet our amazing community of artists, explore our cultural heritage, let loose and dance, take in a film, absorb yourself in spoken word, listen to some musicians, enjoy some art outdoors or indulge in some theatre at a local venue.

White Rock has something for you … Come and experience the Semiahmoo Peninsula!
