|“||Since the small islands in this level are surrounded by the sea, the key to success here is skillful swimming! You can also look forward to running into many new enemies with new special abilities for you to steal in this level!”|

Kirby is sitting on the beach, wearing sunglasses and day-dreaming about various snack foods. A Waddle Doo with a hammer suddenly appears in Kirby's thought bubble and hits him on the head and knocks his sunglasses off. Kirby falls out of his lounge chair and looks around in a confused, surprised, and worried manner.
Ice Cream Island consists of five normal stages. It is a tropical, sunny, paradise. The level is filled with sandy beaches, coastal forests, exotic flowers, explosive coconuts, and palm trees. The majority of the parts of Ice Cream Island that Kirby travels through is covered by shallow waters and overlooks a large ocean. Kirby also traverses a vast desert-sized beach, an underground cave, and even ventures into the clouds in this level. Taking place near the bay, many of the enemies in Ice Cream Island are aquatic enemies and can survive in the water. The boss of Ice Cream Island, Paint Roller, is fought inside a large castle, but Kirby is only able to explore one room of it.
Its overworld has a Crane Fever Room (replaced by a Bomb Rally room in the remake) and an Egg Catcher room (replaced by a Kirby's Air Grind room in the remake). It also has a Museum featuring Laser Ball and Hot Head (bestowing the Laser and Fire abilities to Kirby, respectively) and an Arena with Mr. Frosty (who gives Freeze).

|Theme - Ice Cream Island|
- In Meta Melon Isle, the penultimate stage of Kirby's Epic Yarn, Ice Cream Island is alluded to in the stage's collectible Ice Cream figure's description as another tropical paradise.
- A remix of Ice Cream Island's theme plays during the 2-Player Competition mode in Kirby's Avalanche, Paletto Polis in Kirby: Canvas Curse, and Meta Melon Isle in Kirby's Epic Yarn. The Ice Cream Island level music from Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land was reused for some stages in Kirby: Squeak Squad.
- The music for Ice Cream Island appears as a medley in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U.
