The Toronto Islands are surprisingly beautiful, all things considered. I’ve been before, several years ago, but it was only on a recent trip there for the first time in years, that I realized how picturesque the islands are! Obviously, they’ve got nothing on any island in the Caribbean, but for a beach in a busy metropolitan centre, it’s pretty gorgeous. Far more peaceful than the beach in Chicago, and more beautiful than the beaches on Sentosa Island in Singapore for instance, by several orders of magnitude.
I think Toronto residents often don’t get to enjoy the beaches on the Islands as much as they could and should.
Don’t believe me? See for yourself.
We even managed to stay long enough to enjoy a beautiful sunset:
