While bigger isn't always better, in this case, it certainly is. Did you know that Canada's longest ocean pier is in B.C. only a short drive from Vancouver? The White Rock Pier is now officially open for the summer. If you are someone who longs for lazy days by the water, then you need to see it for yourself.
The City of White Rock announced that as of Wednesday, June 17, the pier is open again to the public. Deputy Mayor Scott Kristjanson said in a statement, "we are hoping that with the reopening of the White Rock Pier and a return to normal."
Visitors are asked to be respectful and practice physical distancing while they're taking in the ocean views.
It is such a cute spot in lower mainland Vancouver, and so iconic. You won't believe your eyes, as the pier seems to go on forever.
Built above the splashing waves, the White Rock Pier is 1,542 feet long. Standing above the water, you can enjoy an incredible lookout of the Semiahmoo Bay and sandy beach.
It is a lovely spot for a romantic date night they won't forget. So the next time you don't know what to do with your special someone, you should definitely bring them here.
The two of you can explore the Waterfront Promenade next to the pier. There are tons of restaurants where you can have dinner or get a quick treat.
We suggest you get something to go, like two cups of coffee or ice cream cones. Then the two of you can walk along the beach and slowly make your way along the pier.
If you can, you'll want to time your visit for sunset. As the view of the brilliant jewel-tone sky reflected in the water is particularly stunning.
But you certainly don't need to be on a date to enjoy this area. It is also a fun spot in the daytime with your friends, as it almost feels like you are in Florida.
