(4.4/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
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. To visit White Rock Pier on your trip to White Rock, use our White Rock itinerary builder.

  • Beautiful location. Wasn't too busy when I went. No dogs allowed, however, so keep this in mind! Otherwise, very clean beach with clean walking trail and gorgeous scenery! Perfect chill spot.
  • White Rock is a beautiful place. The wharf offers a unique experience and the active railroad along the boardwalk is a great attraction for train buffs. The disappointments for me were the difficulty in finding parking and the lack of healthy eating options. My advice would be to come early to get a park and make sure you feel like fish and chips that day.
  • Great pier with lovely views of the city and ocean. Spectacular fireworks display on Canada Day.
  • We walked all over the park in the coast, and along the pier. It was during sunset and twilight, a lovely time of day. While we were doing this, the lights of the pier were turned on, and the whole place looked like a nice, calm, retro scenario of the 1950's.
  • Beautiful ocean views on a long, but small town feeling pier. Illuminated for lovely nighttime walks.
