#1 of 12 in Things to do in White Rock
Stroll along White Rock Pier and admire the panoramic views of Semiahmoo Bay and the town of White Rock. The pier, which stretches for 457 m (1,500 ft) into the bay, offers picturesque views all year round, regardless of the weather. The now famous pier was first opened in 1914 to allow deep-water mooring in the town. Today, the pier buzzes activity and attracts both locals and tourists, who come to gaze at the sunsets and enjoy the fresh air. Keep your eyes peeled for seals basking in the warm, shallow waters below.

  • A walk up the White Rock Pier is a must and it is best to just take your time and look around. Best time is when the tide is out.  more »

  • There are a lot of parking spots along white rock. The view is amazing no matter where you are along the beach. There is a Pier which is a nice walk and takes you far out on the water where you can take some breath taking photos. If you are hungry this is a great place to eat or snack. There are all sorts of foods and many restaurants along the strip. There are some stores too but they are expensive so it's worth going somewhere else to shop. This is a great destination for people from our of town or living in the area. This is also good place to bring your family. They have ice cream shops all over the place.
  • It's quite surprising to see that something like this was built, and had been around for over 100 years. The pier is a large and impressive structure, especially considering that it was built prior to 1920 without the construction equipment available today. It's also in excellent condition considering the age of the structure. It took around 10 minutes to walk the full length of it, and it is fairly wide as well. The effort that went in to building it is truly astonishing. It is a well kept, well maintained attraction and visiting it is highly recommended.
  • What a place to enjoy sea, beach and food! We were here almost three years back and we enjoyed a lot and I still crave for the place. Such a tasty food and pier. Very courteous and friendly locals add to your happiness.
  • There is tons to do, see and eat. Close by there are many ice cream parlours and restaurants so you can fill some cravings while you enjoy a beautiful walk down the pier and down the beach. It makes for a great way to spend your weekend with your family during the summer, in the winter it is quite cold, so a nice walk down the pier and heading in to a restaurant is what Id recommend at this time of year.
  • Always a favourite of mine because of the open sea, the stroll along the pier, the restaurants, the general gaiety of the area during peak tourist months in the summer. Seafood restaurant serves local oysters and seafood. Ice cream parlours offer great variety. Pubs, bar and grills offer great live music and locally brewed booze. Just a must do and highly recommended. White Pine beach is pretty close by by car and a lot of open space to walk or just laze on the rocky beach. Houses perched on the side of the hill overlooking the bay are pretty awesome. Feels like you're in another seaside country. But hey, it is after all in Beautiful British Columbia.
