Saint Andrews, or St. Andrews by-the-Sea as it is often called, has long been one of New Brunswick’s premier vacation destinations. Whether you check in at the world-famous Algonquin Resort and play a round of golf on the signature golf course designed by Thomas McBroom or stroll along Water Street, let Saint Andrews welcome you to our friendly town. Many adventures await you. Accompanied by local guides, drive on the ocean floor to Ministers Island at low tide to visit the historic summer home of Sir William Van Horne. Enjoy whale-watching excursions on the Bay of Fundy, or shop in the historic downtown to find that unique treasure made by local artisans. Stroll the 11 ha (27 acres) of Kingsbrae Garden, named one of the Top Ten Public Gardens in Canada. Pick up a map at the Visitor Information Centre and explore the historic town plat to see houses that were barged across the bay from Castine, Maine, and then rebuilt here in Saint Andrews by the United Empire Loyalists in 1783.
