The Islands are unlike any other spot in Toronto. There are several to choose from and they all serve different (although similar) purposes. Ward's Island is the best place to go sunbathing. You'll feel like you're not even in the city. Hanlan's Point is the clothing-optional beach, so you know what you can do there. And Centre Island is for the kiddies and the young at heart as it boasts a small fairground. All of the islands can be accessed from Queen's Quay for $6 a ticket on the ferry.
The Toronto Islands website will give in depth detail of events and activity. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toronto_IslandsThe Rectory Cafe on Ward's Island (at the east end of the island) is one of my favourite escapes on a hot summer day. If you are travelling with kids, a day at Centreville is a must, then ride your bike or rent a multi-person bike and ride along the path to any of the other islands. It makes for a perfect Toronto experience. The west end of the island, Hanlon's Point is a great LGBT friendly spot.
The Toronto Islands provide a great, refreshing escape from downtown with a beautiful view of Lake Ontario on one side, and the city skyline on the other. The Islands area is a great place to bask on blue flag beaches, and offers other tourist features such as the Gibraltar Point Lighthouse, Franklin Children's Garden, Centreville Amusement Park, Far Enough Farm, Ferry service and Water Taxis.
A great place for all sorts of outdoor activities- even the ferry ride to and from the islands provide great views of the city. It's best to explore the islands on a bike, as it's 5 km from end to end. Rentals are available close to the Center Island ferry stop. Once on the island, there are beaches, a disc golf course, a lot of open space, an amusement park for kids, and many more options.
