White Rock community encompasses South Surrey which share the Semiahmoo Peninsula, a land mass located approx. 30 km south of Vancouver, immediately adjacent to the international border. The area comprising White Rock and South Surrey is approximately 50 square miles.

The peninsula offers a lifestyle that is influenced by the unique environment of its physical setting. Curved around the beaches and warm waters of the Pacific Ocean, White Rock's waterfront boasts many fine restaurants, coffee bars, ice cream parlors, curio shops and clothing boutiques. Beautiful, ocean view homes rise up from the beach to dot the steep hillside, overlooking the Gulf Islands, Semiahmoo Resort, and the lights of Blaine, Washington. Add to this beauty one of the most moderate climates in Canada with average temperatures of 23 degrees Celsius in the summer and six degrees in the winter. When it's raining and cloudy in Vancouver, it is often sunny and clear in White Rock. The peninsula basks in approximately 1900 hours of smog-free sunshine per year.

While Vancouver's climate is quite different to White Rock's, the city itself is only 45 minutes away by car. The border crossing into Washington State is only five minutes away, with Seattle being a two-hour drive down the Interstate 5. White Rock is only 30 minutes from the Vancouver International Airport, and is a 20-minute drive from the ferry terminals transporting travelers to Victoria, Nanaimo, and the Gulf Islands.
