St Andrews By the Sea: The Quintessential Canadian Maritime Holiday
Serving as a popular summer retreat for more than a century, St Andrews By-The-Sea in New Brunswick on Canada's eastern coast is one of those timeless seaside towns that after visiting makes you want to return each year as well. Sitting on the Bay of Fundy, an area famous for having some of the highest tides in the world – they can reach up to 30-feet. To make the trip tops, stay where the history is at the Algonquin Resort (part of Marriot’s Autograph Collection and the first resort in Canada), a Tudor style castle with a red slate roof and timber façade that sits on a hill overlooking the Bay of Fundy. One of the star amenities is the 18-hole golf course with Passamaquoddy Bay views. When it comes to dining on property, try Braxton’s (named for a former chef at the resort that was the first African-American chef in Canada) for the short rib poutine served on gnocchi or the Verdana for Breakfast where the salmon lox bagel became my go to each morning. We also show you some of our other favorite spots, including Kingsbrae Gardens, a jeep tour with Turtle Shore Adventure and the Oppenheimer Prager Museum.
