Apart from the airport at one end of Toronto Island it is the most quiet place near Toronto. Go there to lie at the beach, swim in Lake Ontario, walk along the beach from one ship station to the next (around 10 km along the whole beach). You can also rent bicycles and other funny vehicles.

The Islands are lush and beautiful. There is ferry service and water taxi service. We walked from Wards Island on the boardwalk with beautiful Lake Ontario on our let to Centre island. At Centre island, you can rent kayaks or canoes

We had a great grandpa/grandson day together on the Island. My grandson loved the ferry and I loved the way he could run around without me having to worry about traffic. Great views of the Toronto skyline!!!

Kayaking to Toronto Island was one of the highlights of my trip. I did it with a bunch of friends from school at the end of the day. The day was amazing and we had a incredible sunset in the way back to the continent. I absolutely loved it!

Picturesque and well maintained this venue is run be City of Toronto bureaucrats. There have been no significant changes in over 30 years. You will look long and hard for a cold hot dog.

Lovely park, outside of the city, a short boat ride away, which was unusual, only problem was that it absolutely poured as soon as we got there. Duly soaked, we were desperate to return to our hotel across the harbour to dry up!

Only a short ferry ride from Harbour Front Toronto this quirky little island has the lot. No cars, except for a few delivery vehicles, with tremendous views back to the city waterfront with all the high rise and the CN Tower. Hired a bike as I didn't go until afternoon, and headed for Wards Island end. Amazing hidden quirk houses... More

The islands are a wonderful way of getting away from all the hustle and bussell of the City. As we had our 18 and 21 year old daughters with us we did think that it may have been aimed at families with younger children. However there is plenty to do if you want to for the whole family of all... More

This is one of whortest visits in Toronto: the ferry which brings you there is in itself an experience (very cheap, by the way, only 7 CAD round trip). You can take it from a single place in Toronto, but up to you to choose one of the 3 locations in the islands to take the ferry back. There is... More

The gardens on the island was beautiful. I think it would have been much better if we would have visited before Labor Day. However saying that I'm sure the ferry ride would have had a long waiting line. It was a good trip to do.
