Now a bona fide cultural and dining destination, White Rock rocks into high gear during the summer, but visitors can expect something to see, taste and do, year round.

Walk along the beach and through picturesque neighbourhoods, browse art galleries, discover historic sites, eat at some terrific restaurants and make a point of joining in some of the many special events.

Water Activities

The beach is White Rock's biggest draw whether it's for family picnics, sandcastle competitions or kayaking excursions. Natural West Coast Adventures launches kayaks from the far west shores of West Beach, and provides instruction and rentals for the novice to experienced paddler. The pier is equally fun. With its boardwalk striding into the water for some 46m/1500ft, it's a favourite spot for fishing, crabbing, swimming and enjoying the views of Mount Baker and the San Juan Islands in Washington State.
