Neighborhood Fun Facts

  • Rockaway Beach is the longest urban beach in the United States, stretching for miles along the Rockaway Peninsula facing the Atlantic Ocean (Source: Vancouver Sun)
  • Once known as the “Irish Riviera” for its large Irish population, the neighborhood is currently home to some 13,400 residents from all backgrounds (Source: Vancouver Sun)
  • Occasionally you may run into seals on shore and spot whales in the distance from the beach
  • There is no such thing as a “surf season” in the Rockaways, as avid surfers keep the lifestyle year round. Yep, even in the snow!
