No trip to the beach is complete without an icy cold treat! Ice cream, or gelato, is the perfect way to beat that heat, and White Rock happens to be loaded with incredible ice cream shops. Whether you’re an ice cream purist looking for a classic vanilla cone, or want to experiment with fun flavours and toppings, you’ll find a scoop to suit everyone!

Crazy Cows Ice Cream
15547 Marine Drive
At Crazy Cows, the ice cream is not whipped but churned the old-fashioned way. Made in-house in small batches using all-natural ingredients and local fruit when it’s available, the flavours here are about as fresh-tasting as you can find. The menu includes the classics and unique flavour combinations like Wild Blueberry Pomegranate, Pineapple Mint and Cinnamon Bun.  And as an added bonus, they also serve French macarons and epic pies from Krause Berry Farms.

Maya’s Ice Cream
15045 Marine Drive
Super creamy, super delicious soft-serve ice cream is the star at Maya’s Ice Cream. Served in a cup and crowned with toppings, try the S’Mores cup with marshmallow, graham crackers and chocolate syrup or a Matcha cup with a sprinkle of matcha and a matcha macaron. And if soft-serve isn’t your thing, they also have a great selection of small-batch, artisan gelato. And like they say at Maya’s … “It’s not going to lick itself!”

Cones Creamery
14961 Marine Drive
You’ll know Cones Creamery is open when you can hear the sounds of Sinatra. That’s the owner, who serves his generous scoops with a smile and a serenade. The waffle cones are made on the premise, along with the many delicious flavours offered. Try a coconut scoop topped with a mango scoop, we promise it will not disappoint!

Heavens Angels
15557 Marine Drive
With over a decade of making gelato under their belts, they have definitely had time to perfect the recipe. And customers agree … the gelato is perfect … and the service is top-notch! New flavours are constantly being added depending on what’s in season, like Blueberry Sorbetto, Almond Cream and Berrylicious Lemon, and there are vegan and sugar-free options. If you’re feeling fancy they also offer affogato – ice cream with a shot of espresso poured over top.  And while you’re there be sure to browse the gift shop for unique wind chimes, crystals and shells.

Thai Affair Rolled Gelato
On the promenade near the White Rock Museum
Looking for gelato that’s a little more “extra” than your everyday cone? Thai Affair Rolled Gelato is sure to satisfy your craving for something sweet and it definitely ticks the “different” box. Choose from a selection of flavour add-ins, which are added to a gelato base and frozen right before your eyes. It’s then rolled into perfect gelato spirals, served in a cup and topped with tasty toppings. Not only is it pretty, but it also tastes delicious! This cute and delicious gelato trailer sets up every day near the White Rock Museum.

Sandcastle Sea Shoppe
15525 Marine Drive
With over 50 flavours of ice cream and gelato, there is definitely something for all ice cream lovers at Sandcastle Sea Shoppe. In the mood for the classics? Vanilla, chocolate and strawberry at your service! But, ready to mix it up? Canadian Moose, Birthday Cake and Espresso Flake are visitor favourites.  And, as the home of White Rock’s famous twin cone, you can have your two scoops side by side, instead of stacked.
