“Wonderful out of city surprise in the middle of the city.”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

We had a wonderful day exploring - ferry ride to and from and a wander around, then we decided to rent a 'bicycle built for two' and take a ride around the island. We enjoyed the walk out on the pier and looking over the water. Hard to believe we were so close to the city - it felt a world away.

“A muust see place!”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

This is one of the most beautiful places around Toronto. The short Ferry / boat ride gives a lovely view of Quen's quay and Lakeshore area. Then, the beautiful amusement areas and restaurants and park are fun place to enjoy with friends or family or as I enjoyed a co-workers' corporate get together.

“Island Haven”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

Whether you want to visit the amusement park area or just walk along the peaceful shoreline, this is a great place to visit. You can bring your own picnic lunch or purchase food there. The trip over and back on the ferryboat is an added bonus.

“Great fun for the kids, big and small.”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

There is lots to do and the ride over is cheap and fun. Great views of Toronto from the island. Lots of activities for the kids in the summer and the amusement park is lots of fun and fairly reasonable. Food is a bit sketchy at times but there are a number of options.
It is worth several visits to see all that the island has to offer.

“Wow, Great Beaches!”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

A short walk to the ferry, take Hanlan's point, not nearly as crowded. A 10 minute walk to the beach side and wow a huge beach with every thing nearby. HINT; take lots of drinks and snacks.
