British columbia


Known for the promenade on the beach, White Rock surprises vistors with its lively uptown area filled with shops and restaurants and inspires with the public art that is found all across the city. And the second beach that locals try to keep a secret - West Beach - where people love to come for kiteboarding, kayaking, and skimboarding.

Why you'll ❤️ this community

The city is an art gallery

Despite its small size, there is an art all around White Rock. From colorful mosaic steps on East Beach to totem poles by the water to the monolithic granite bear that stands at the end of East beach promenade (locally known as Grizlee) and gazes across Semiahmoo Bay to Point Roberts in Washington state. Art will be all around you as you stroll around town.

Lazy days at the beach and strolls on the pier

White Rock has two sandy beaches - East Beach and West Beach. West Beach is where the famous pier is and what most people think of when they think of White Rock beach. On the West Beach there are great restaurants, ice scream shops and a lively atmosphere. East Beach is a bit of a local secret and the one that most locals would tell you is their favorite. It's a tide beach so when the tide is out, it gives you the impression that you could walk to Washington and is the time that kayakers and paddleboarders love. At low tide, the tide pools are perfect for skimboarding. Usually in the Fall/Winter, it gets much windier and draws the attention of kitesurfers who come to take advantage of rolling swells and what can be 20 – 30 mph winds.
