Saint Andrews (St. Andrews by-the-Sea) is a seaside resort town of about 1,500 people (2016) in the Canadian province of New Brunswick on the Bay of Fundy.
The Town of St. Andrews is in the extreme southwest corner of New Brunswick. Settled by Loyalists fleeing the United States in 1783, the town boasts the original plat and many of the houses date from that time. Some houses were floated across from the New England States by barge.
St. Andrews is off of Highway 1, about 30 minutes east of the US border at St. Stephen, NB/Calais, Maine and 65 minutes west of Saint John.
