Written by:

Algonquin Resort

It’s no wonder that Lonely Planet chose Canada as their top destination for 2017.

Our awesome country has been named at the top of the travel expert’s #BestinTravel along with several other destinations.


Why travel to St. Andrews by-the-Sea, New Brunswick?

New Brunswick and its neighbouring provinces are like no other in our great nation. We’re known for our unique and friendly demeanor, homegrown art, and delicious seafood… not to mention our amazing landscapes!

Although New Brunswick isn’t the largest province in Canada, there’s so much to see! Every few kilometers (or miles) our surroundings change – from rolling hills, unspoiled nature, to the world’s highest tides!

Algonquin Resort is less than a half hour away from the United States border and only 1.5 hours away from the Saint John Airport – we’re in the perfect location for you to kick off your adventure!


Experience fine dining

Braxton's Dining Room

St. Andrews by-the-Sea may be small, but it’s mighty in the culinary world. With fresh seafood like lobster, mussels, and halifbut caught off our New Brunswick shores, it doesn’t get much fresher than this!

Braxton’s Restaurant offers a fine dining experience and uses locally sourced components. Let Chef Ron Kneabone and the Algonquin team take your taste buds to an entire new level.

Other restaurants that we highly recommend in our resort town are:


Experience nature

Nestled on the coast of the Passmaquody Bay, our New Brunswick hotel offers beautiful panoramic views of the water. The Passmaquody is an inlet of the famed Bay of Fundy – home to the highest tides in the world.

There’s nothing more amazing than being able to bare witness to this natural wonder of the world.
