Ever wondered what the legend of the white rock is? It started when the son of a sea god fell in love with an Indian princess from the Cowichan Tribes. Because of the rejection by both families, a giant rock was picked up by the young sea god and said: “Wherever it lands, we will live.”He hurled the white rock 60 miles from the Vancouver Island to where it is now located on the beach in White Rock. The Semiahmoo tribe was formed when the couple followed the rock. Since then, the town surrounding the rock became known as White Rock.
