White Rock

The seaside community of White Rock is said to enjoy more hours of sunshine than any place in British Columbia. Just north of the American border and only 35 minutes south of Vancouver, White Rock is known for its sandy beaches, waterfront dining and beautiful sunsets. White Rock has many of the amenities of a major urban centre yet an enduring sense of community that likely stems from its early history as a summer leisure destination for urban dwellers. The community takes pride in its traditions of artistic and scholastic excellence.
