We had the good fortune of visiting White Rock, BC for the first time ever, and it just happened to be on Canada Day! The weather was magnificent, the festivities were great, and we'd love to go back again! There were activities all day long and a wonderful fireworks display over the water after dark. This bellydance troup was one of the performances. They said they had been together for years, and were really great to watch.
The waterfront was a beautiful variety of changing scenery. When the tide was in the water was several feet deep right up to the edge. When the tide was out there was a labrynth of tide pools and sand bars that produced an endless display of reflective ribbons.
There is actually a very large white rock on the beach! Not naturally white, but very strikingly whitewashed. I haven't researched the history. But my suspision is that the town was more likely named after the white appearing cliffs at the north end of the bay than the whitewashed rock on the beach. Anyone who really knows is welcome to set things straight.
- Pros:Compact, picturesque, great food, beautiful summer spot
- Cons:Most housing is located on VERY steep hillside
- In a nutshell:We didn't know it existed, but so glad we discovered it!
All day / evening party! Complete with bellydancers and fireworks! This was our first time to White Rock, but it was... more travel advice
