Sad but the elements destroyed a significant part of this beautiful pier. IT will be rebuilt. The City of White Rock is doing everything to restore this tourist attraction! Cost is estimated to be around 6 million

Hello, don't expect to walk on pier this year. A storm broke the pier in half. But there is plenty of other things to do around the beach.

Beautiful place to walk to the end of the pier and watch people fishing! Only annoying thing is the birds. Sad to see that it’s been destroyed by the windstorm. Hoping it can be rebuilt.

The large, white rock figures prominently in narratives of the local Coast Salish Peoples. One legend holds that the white rock marks the landing spot of a stone that was hurled across the Strait of Georgia by a young chief. Iconic, 0.46-kilometer wood pier dating to 1914, popular...More
