How fun to rent bikes and ride through the island with no cars to worry about! Pretty beaches, lovely scenery, and miles of open bike trails.

We took the boat over, had a good view of Toronto skyline. Lovely island, loved the beach, but definitely a place for young children, pre teens. My two ages 18 + 16 had nothing to do there, but was pleasant enough for a couple of hours walking around, very clean and lovely views.

If nothing else, the views of Toronto from the short ferry ride over make this a worthwhile trip in itself. The ferry only costs $8 return. The island is fairly compact and is easily navigable on foot. Bike hire is also available. The beaches are clean and were uncrowded when we were there (Monday afternoon). Definitely worth a visit.

We enjoyed... More

I never tire of spending time on Toronto island when we visit Toronto in the summer. The view of the city from there is stunning, and finding yourself in such a quiet, restful green space within a short ferry ride from downtown is phenomenal. One of Toronto's great treasures!!

We spent part of yesterday at Centreville, We love Centreville and have been there as kids and now take our daughter. Unfortunately we may never go back to the islands. We had the misfortune of being on a ferry with at least 100 Ryerson frosh students who chanted, yelled and whistled(with a shrill whistle) all the way to the islands.... More

The fun begins with the ferry ride to the island. Lots of green spaces to relax and have a picnic. We did not have our bikes but the people that did seemed to be enjoying riding around the island. Centreville Amusements were fun too!

I've travelled by car across Canada and must say that the Toronto Islands are absolutely one of the best places to see! I had just been told there were gardens and ponds, but the view I experienced when I stepped off the ferry and walked to the area with the tour kiosks awed me! I walked across the island and... More

We enjoyed the ferry that went to Center Island. We had lunch at the Carousel Cafe. We walked to the beach and took a dip in clean Lake Ontario water. We walked out on the pier. We rented a quadracyle for two and enjoyed a ride to Ward's Island. There is so much more to do here....kyaks, canoes, hikes, a... More
