Also known as the Ecor Blanc, the White Bluff is a historic area in Demopolis, Alabama. It is best noted for its physical composition as well.

The White Bluff got its name from being a chalk cliff, being composed of a geological layer known as the Demopolis Chalk Formation. It stretches for almost a mile long, located 90 miles above the Tomigbee River.

The White Bluff is where the French Bonapartist refugees landed in 1817. It is also where early Native American inhabitants used to harness their boats.

Today, it is where the annual Christmas on the River festival is held.
The White Bluff is a part of the National Register of Historic Places. A park is also located here.
