White Rock real estate is extremely popular thanks to its combination of proximity to the beach, excellent community and ease of access to Vancouver and other Lower Mainland municipalities. It originated as a resort town on the Semiahmoo Bay, but the advent of modern transportation led increasing numbers of people to live there year round.
Once part of neighbouring Surrey, White Rock became a separate city in 1957, and since then, had become known as a great place to live. It is named for a large white rock on its beach. In the past, it was so white, thanks to its guano covering, that sailors used it for navigation. These days, its colour is maintained through annual painting.
Residents enjoy spending time on the pier or promenade, where they can take a stroll and indulge in fish & chips or ice cream. There are plenty of cultural and other events held in White Rock, including the Tour de White Rock cycle race, concerts at the famous Blue Frog Studios and more.
While White Rock homes for sale appeal to many people, they are especially popular with retirees due to the city’s mild climate. Below, you can see what is currently available in White Rock real estate. Use my easy-to-use map search to browse and filter results by price, size and more.
