“Lovely walk”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

We had a lovely walk on a sunny day in the week. There were few families about, ti was mainly adults out for a walk in the sunshine. it was very quiet.
We couldn't hire a bike, as the ID required was health card or driving licence, and as foreign travellers, we were not carrying anything other than cards or hotel documents and they wouldn't accept these. This was a shame, as we had waited for them to open.

“A brilliant way to spend an afternoon”
Reviewed June 2, 2013 via mobile

We had such a great afternoon on Toronto island. The ferry over costs 7 dollars per adult for a round trip and goes every half an hour. We met some locals on the ferry who said that it's not just a place for tourists, but locals go there to chill out too.

We hired bikes - 8 dollars per hour- and cycled round the island. The best way to see it! Particularly loved all the gorgeous wood houses at the Ward Island end as well as the amazing views of the Toronto sky line that you get.

By the time we left we were both utterly chilled out. A cheap way to pass an afternoon. The public toilets were also in really good condition!

“A good day out”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

Toronto Island has everything for everybody. restaurants, entertaining, beaches...etc.
The only trouble is getting there. The ferry gets very busy during summer. This will be, hopefully, addressed, as Toronto is planing a bridge for quick car and pedestrian access and also a tunnel which is still under construction.

I spent a whole quiet and relaxing day on the island. This is not for families with kids as most might think. There are so many things to do. You can hike or rent bicycles, you can even rent canoes and paddle boats or just just relax on the beach away from the loud and crowded downtown Toronto. You have to pay it a visit while visiting Toronto. Two thumbs up!

“Good spot to relax near the city”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

We got the boat out to Ward's Island beach and spent hours taking in the excellent views of the city and relaxing on the beach. For the price it's a must-do in the city and we're glad we went.
