The islands were amazing: Nature, Food, Fun! You HAVE to visit if you're in Toronto! Ferry ride only 7 CAD (Cash only) and took about 15 minutes. Very nice views from the Ferry while riding over.

“Great city centre green space”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

Very good to walk around and watch the world go by. Could easily spend most of a whole day there. Also is a lot fresher that the the heat of the city.

“What a beautiful gem!”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

To leave Toronto by ferry heading towards Toronto Island is an adventure itself, but when you look back at Toronto, with its gleaming mirror forest of eclectic architecture set against an azure blue sky you realise the wonder contradictions that is Canada and especially Toronto, and Toronto Island.
The Island is a beautiful lake bound pocket of land that was a perfect day for us. We ate ice creams , hired one of the bikes and sunbathed on one of the many small beaches that face into the lake. I did dabble my toes in the water and boy , it was freezing so no chance of a dip, but it was achingly beautiful. There is evidence of 1960's type concrete areas which hopefully the Toronto council will remove as its quite ugly in this place of beauty. Though sad to leave after a wonderful restful day on the Island, that ferry trip but to Toronto, and the view again, more than made up for it. So when in Toronto you must visit the Island. Ps Rumour has it that one of the beaches has a clothing optionally mandate, hmmm missed that one.

“A little bit of country in the city.”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

A fun trip on the ferry and lots to do. Rides, bicycle rental, lovely quiet walks, picnics, wander around on Ward's Island and see the cottages. Naked sunbathing at Hanlon's Point. Take your pick and enjoy. Beautiful views of downtown Toronto by day or night.
