The outdoor dining season is upon us! Soak up the sun, sip on an ice cold drink, and enjoy the view at these beautiful beachfront patios in White Rock.
Sit back and relax with a pitcher of cold beer, pub comfort food, and good company on the patio at The Hemingway Public House. The large patio space makes it the perfect place on the strip to take in the ocean view with a group of friends. Then when the sun sets, put on your dancing shoes and show off your best dance moves on the dance floor.

This large waterfront eatery has been a local favourite for nearly 30 years. Especially in the summer, locals hit the patio at Charlie Don’t Surf to enjoy fresh, wild, organic and sustainable seafood, gluten-free and vegetarian eats, and local craft beer.
