Visitors love White Rock’s 2.5-kilometre long promenade that extends along the warm, shallow waters of Semiahmoo Bay.

The waterfront promenade is fully accessible to the disabled and parents with strollers. “The heritage pier, train station, large beached “white rock,” and colourful sidewalk cafes create a special ambience throughout the area,” says the city’s website.
