White Pine Beach at Sasamat Lake is a popular place to escape the urban grind and spend some time relaxing on the beach with the family. The beach is located just a few minutes outside of Coquitlam in Belcarra Regional Park. There are two nice sandy beaches with great swimming, a small concession booth, a few picnic tables, and washroom facilities. Additionally, a 2.5-kilometer walking trail follows the shoreline all the way around the lake and provides access to a few other smaller beach spots. A few longer hiking trails lead up into Belcarra Regional Park such as the Diez Vistas Trail, which offers spectacular views of Indian Arm.

The most common complaint about White Pine Beach is how crowded it can get, which is not surprising given its proximity to such a large city. Not unlike nearby Buntzen Lake Beach, it’s typically very busy here on a sunny day during the summer, so plan to arrive early in order to secure a parking spot and claim a bit of sand. Alternatively, it is possible to get here via public transit, which makes it a great option for those without access to a vehicle.
