I've been here in Bayside for just over 6 months and I have to say a favourite place of ours for all the family is Black Rock and here's a few reasons why! If you haven't visited any of these fab places in Black Rock, put them on your to do list NOW!
This has to be the best ice-cream that my two kids and I have enjoyed as yet! Fab funky parlour and delicious flavours of ice-cream to choose to enjoy. I'm a bit of bore when it comes to ice-cream and tend to go for the mint chocolate chip every time, but there are plenty of options to choose from.
2. Uncle Barts Cafe This is my absolute favourite and home for many a morning of the week. What do I love about Uncle Barts? Is it the friendly staff, the amazing coffee or the funky tunes that magically take me back in time to my early twenties when dancing took priority over pretty much anything else! If you haven't tried the coffee, banana cake or smashed avo on toast - you are missing out!
3. Black Rock Park (on Beach Road) This is definitely my two little ones' favourite park as there is quite a lot of variety in terms of stuff to have a go on and there's enough grass to kick a ball around. It's next to the beach so if you decide you fancy a play in the sand or sea, it's just a 2 minute walk down the path. There are BBQ facilities and a public toilet, so it is easy to while away the time here with all of the family.
A yoga studio with stunning views over Half Moon Bay. Have a read of my article where I explain why this studio is so great. They do some fab introductory offers - so if you haven't tried this studio out I would highly recommend it.
