White Rock Pier, White Rock

4.5
#1 of 10 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. Make White Rock Pier a centerpiece of your White Rock vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our White Rock route planning website .

    I like walking on the beach, and the pier is a nice place to view the ocean scenery and looking back toward White Rock. The downside is the cost of parking.  more »

    White Rock Pier has a long history from 1915. Locals and tourists alike enjoy walking to the end of the pier and along the brick promenade, enjoying fish and chips or ice cream and watching crabbers with their cages off the end of the pier. These activities make for a fun filled summer day. Winter does not detour the walkers even when it rains.

    This is probably the best part of White Rock there is. The view is amazing. On a sunny day this is a can't miss spot. Lots of tourist around. Even if the weather is a little cold, it is still worth coming for sure. Great place for photos!

    Lots of people and adventurous teens, laid-back atmosphere. Great place to see the sunset.

    The washroom is disgusting. The peir needs more attractions. This peir has so much potential. As of now it's just a 10 minute walk with a great view.
