White Rock

The City of White Rock is located near the southern most point of Greater Vancouver and is home to approximately 20,000 residents. This charming seaside enclave is clustered around 8 km of sandy beach, with a picture-perfect oceanfront promenade and 2,000 foot pier that was officially opened in 1914. Drawing new residents and visitors alike year round, White Rock features unique boutiques, distinct cafes & restaurants and a 486 ton white boulder, a glacial deposit from the coastal range.



Just 45 km from Vancouver and 5 minutes to the Canada/US border, White Rock as part of South Surrey stretches from 140th Street to the West, Stayte Road to the East, North Bluff Road (16th Avenue) to the north and Marine Drive to the south.


Amid its idyllic waterfront setting, the City of White Rock has some single-family homes on smaller lots, recently constructed deluxe condominiums and breathtaking waterfront estate homes. The Globe and Mail describes White Rock beachfront strip as an “… eccentric mix of art deco, beach shacks and California-inspired architecture along Marine Drive.”


As a popular seaside destination, White Rock specializes in restaurants serving fresh seafood, steaks, Italian, fish & chips, tapas, French style bistros and pubs. The promenade is dotted with numerous trendy boutiques and shops. Minutes away, the Ocean Park and Semiahmoo Shopping Centres feature major grocery stores, banks, pharmacies and more. In addition, downtown White Rock has many independent retailers to enhance your shopping experience.

White Rock is home to the Peace Arch Hospital and nearby Centennial Park in the heart of White Rock has a leisure centre, ice arena, curling club and ravine trails. Just up the road is Softball City in South Surrey Athletic Park, a baseball-themed sports complex with batting cages and sports grill.
