White Rock is a beautiful seaside community with eight kilometres of sandy beach. It’s also home to Canada’s longest wooden pier.

The White Rock Pier, one of the community’s most beloved features, extends 470-metres out over the warm, shallow waters of Semiahmoo Bay.

Built in 1914, the pier has had a number of significant repairs over the years, most notably after a devastating winter storm in December, 2018, tore the structure in half.

It reopened in September, 2019, but has been temporarily closed due to the COVID-19 crisis.
