White Rock Promenade
The White Rock Promenade stretches along the shoreline of this beautiful small town, providing a walkway between East beach and West beach, complete with memorials and information stops along the way.
Visitors to the White Rock Promenade can walk alongside historic buildings, train tracks, inviting beaches and shallow ocean waters or grab a drink or snack from the nearby shops and restaurants. Popular throughout the year and especially in the summer months with the regions booming tourism industry, the White Rock Promenade is the perfect destination for a day of fun in the sun.
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 White Rock 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 White Rock Promenade allows 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 White Rock Promenade, 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 White Rock Promenade.
