The Pier and Promenade of White Rock offer beautiful views of Semiahmoo Bay, the town and surrounding region.
Stretching two and a half kilometres across the waterfront of this small town, the White Rock Promenade and its adjoining 1,500 foot pier which is built into Semiahmoo Bay are the areas most popular attractions. Starting from the east near the crossroads of Finlay Street and Marine Drive the Promenade moves westwards alongside notable landmarks and locales such as the White Rock (for which the town is named for) and the Museum and Archives in the old train station and culminates at Bay Street and Marine Drive.
A year round destination, the Promenade and Pier allow visitors and locals to experience White Rock and its surroundings. In the summer months visitors to the area can enjoy beautiful views, balmy weather, swimming and playing on the beaches below the promenade and fishing off the pier. Summer also brings the White Rock Sandcastle Competition where amazing sculptures are built along the shores which visitors can enjoy and walk through with a self-guided tour.
Above the promenade and pier, along Marine Drive, dozens of restaurants and shops are open for exploration offering a wide range of goods and services - here, visitors can grab an ice cream cone or fish and chips and eat them on the nearby beach or continue their leisurely stroll along the trail. The train tracks are still operational and every so often trains come through this seaside town - be sure to look both ways before crossing the tracks when walking to the promenade.
The White Rock Pier and Promenade offer many activities, attractions and historic buildings and areas to enjoy. It is well worth the trip to enjoy a day or a few hours on the shores of this beautiful town on the edge of British Columbia.
