The jewel of Toronto. A place I've been going to for decades. No long drive, stuck in traffic. A fun ferry ride over and I'm away from the city. I do wish that the bylaws of NO DOGS on the beach would be enforced. It is reasonable to think that anyone could understand how having dogs running around naked people... More

The island has everything. A nice beach for the kids. A pier that with a view into the horizon. Ambiance befitting of a true getaway. I would recommend a whole day just at the islands, you can catch a ferry from Queen's Quay, rent a bike, and just cruise.

I spent the day on the island with friends and it was fantastic. The best thing was the incredible views you can get of the Toronto skyline. Absolutely breathtaking. The island is very clean. My biggest recommendation though is to take food and drink with you as it is VERY expensive. There are tons of places for picnics or just... More

Took a trip to the Islands on a lovely Summers date and after getting off of the ferry we headed off to hire a four seater bike. We peddling along down to the airport end and back. Great views of the waterfront and the skyline. After that we headed to the Centre Island beach. Plenty of space to lay out... More

We took the ferry at 11 am on a weekday and we were surprised by how many people there were. The ferry terminal was crowded, but there was plenty of room on the island. The amusement park was larger than expected and looked well maintained. We spent some time on the beach and rented a tandem bike and rode to... More

Took the ferry, went to the park, rented bikes and enjoyed a lot! You won't feel like you are in a city anymore, it feels like vacation (beaches, bars, amusement park..)! Great way to experience tge "weekend life" in Toronto.

This is an absolute must do on a sunny day. Renting bikes is cheap and the best way to explore. Come prepared for spending time at an urban beach.

We were told that the view from the island was a must as it just gives you a different perspective of the city. The ferry was 7 dollars return all we did was walk around and take pics but wow was it totally worth it!!

On summer days, there are huge lines to buy tickets. Make sure to buy yours online. It is easy and you will be able to go straight to the ferries. The island is peaceful and extremely beautiful, and the view from the city is incredible. A must-go.

There are three islands, which you can walk between so it doesn't matter which one you take the ferry to first. Ward island is nice because its the residential one and they have a very quant village area where they all live which is worth looking at, there are also great views to the Toronto Skyline from here. Alongside this,... More

Staying in Downtown West

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
