  • More for adults who want to escape from the city and sit at a beach and read a book or go for a stroll or bike ride along the beautiful pathway which meanders all over the island.  more »
  • A short ten minute ferry ride brings you to Wards Island. The views are great and there is peace and quiet to be had.  more »
  • I have always loved visiting the Toronto Islands. Great walking trails and you can return on the centre island ferry.  more »

  • Beautiful beach, worth going during the week if you can...a lot quieter
  • Calm, relaxing and quiet. A great place to have a good time with friends (or with your partner), a great beach to walk, and a nice place to take photos.
  • Pretty busy on the later days and it's not very big. Nice sand and water though.
  • Relax and enjoy it. It's a playa and it's in Toronto. Forget all about downtowns and uptowns.
  • Nice little beach on the islands. I like to paddle to the Islands and take a break here.
