area also known as “Manitou Beach”. Centre Island Beach has very calm, shallow,

to go for a walk, swim, relax, picnic, and enjoy the scenery. What a beautiful spot!

Toronto Island Park away from major park facilities and activity areas, this is
one of the quietest beaches on the Island. Ward's Beach is sheltered a bit by
the Leslie Split, so its calm water is ideal for swimming. There is usually
enough wind here for kites and wind boards, though. Amenities include picnic
tables and rain garden area. It is a bit rocky, especially at the west end and
perfect to escape the crowds of Centre Island.

of the cleanest beaches in mainland Toronto.

Park are key amenities.
