21 Dec The A-List: Top Spots To Eat Ice Cream And Enjoy The Summer Sun
Kiwis love enjoying a yummy ice cream in the sunshine, but what really makes a truly great ice cream experience is being somewhere just as spectacular as the tasty morsel in your hands. Therefore, we’ve tracked down some of the best places with stunning views and ocean breezes to enjoy your sweet treats this summer!
Narrow Neck Beach
Nestled between Devonport and Bayswater, Narrow Neck is a stunning spot on the Shore. Long stretches of beautiful white sand and a lesser-known spot than other North Shore beaches. This is perfect for some peace and quiet to enjoy your icy treat!
If you’re after a little more hustle and bustle while you enjoy your sweet snacks then Wynyard Quarter is the place to be. This central city, waterfront precinct is amazing and is only going to get better as it undergoes a 25 year urban transformation.
Just a stroll down from Mission Bay, Bastion Point is just as breath taking. This spot has a rich history as he 1970 Maori protests against forced land alienation happened here, overlooking the Waitemata Harbour. The Michael Savage memorial commemorates the first Labour Prime Minister and also makes an awesome shot for the ‘gram!
North Head – Maungauika
Maungauika is a volcano forming the North Head headland. Another spot full of history, there’s a network of tunnels and bunkers left from when it was used by the military as a coastal defence installation.
Well-known as the wildest beach on the West coast, Piha is an awesome spot for a walk, a swim, and definitely some ice cream!
If you haven’t yet got a favourite ice cream for the summer season or are just looking to try something new, we’d recommend Little Island’s NEW Toasted Coconut Caramel Ice Cream or sipping a glass of Akarua’s RUA Pinot Gris or RUA Pinot Rosé – yum!
