Things to see in White Rock

Taking its name from the 400-ton glacial rock which sits on the beach, this chilled out town makes the most of its natural riches. Be sure to discover the legend of the rock during your visit! At low tide, the beach turns from beautiful to stunning. The vast expanse of sand has serious wow factor. The promenade continues along the beach for over a mile and provides access to the 470-meter long pier, which crowns the area as a top seaside spot. The promenade is lined with shops, restaurants, cafes, and places to simply stop, sit, and look at the view. From fish and chips to fine dining, you can find all sorts of restaurants along the beachfront. Away from the sand, take a little time to learn more about the area at the White Rock Museum and Archives.

Good for couple and families

Facing west, the promenade is ideal for a romantic stroll by the crystal blue waters, as you watch the sunset on the horizon.
