Few places are finer for watching a west coast sunset than White Rock’s splendid oceanfront promenade. 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.
