White Rock’s historic pier was originally built in 1914 as a dock for the coastal steamships that arrived when the Great Northern Railway began operation. Restored some 70 years later, the pier is still a customs port of entry for small crafts, but it’s days of welcoming steamships are long gone. Stretching out 470m/1542 ft into the ocean, the landmark pier is a destination unto itself. Walk to the end to see local fishermen’s daily catches and bask in the impressive views of the coastal mountains and the San Juan Islands. Take an after dinner stroll to see breathtaking sunsets and feel the ocean’s warm breeze.
