Saint Andrews Things to Do

  • Rare trees

    Even if your're not a gardener , its worth it to stoll the pathways at Kingsbrae Gardens.They have many different old Acadian trees and I was interested to see the rare Willemi Pine tree. It was enclosed with meash.

  • A garden for the senses

    At Kingsbrae , I was impressed that there was a raised garden especially for the visulally impaired . The signs were in brail and the plants were chosen for feel and smell!

  • Kingsbrae Gardens

    Kingsbrae Garden, is a 27 acre garden and is named one of Canada’s Top Ten Public Gardens .We took an hour to walk around but you could easily spend several hours .There is always something blooming. They say they have 50,000 flowers, shrubs and trees , so that would expain it . There are many different pathways through the garden...covering all of...

  • Take a walk

    We enjoyed strolling through town . Its defintely touristy but unlike so many others the people that live here are genuine and friendly . Many of the shops sell local products and the old ocean beaten buildings with their tin roofs give a hint of how old this place really is.

  • Whale Watching

    When you stroll through town to the dockside , you'll see lots of different little boating companies offering whale watching adventures. They see finback and minke whales.We've seen whales many times from our own boat in NS so we passed..but it is something everyone should see at least once.

  • Watch the tide

    The fundy tide is famous rises faster than any tide in the world. Its strange to see the boats tided with enough slack to allow them to sit on the ocean floor in low tide.

Saint Andrews Restaurants

  • The best breakfast place

    This place is on the main street in can't miss it . They have home amde bread ..that's what sold me . For $3.99 you get toast , eggs ham and tea or coffee. Lots of good muffins too.

  • A restuarant with a view

    This was a perfect restarant if you want to try a really good Maritime lobster . The lobster was fabulous ....and we're pretty fussy coming for NS. The view is great too . We watch the fundy tide coming in .There are wide decks that overlook the bay and a warfy feeling indoors area too.Lots of other good things on the menu besides lobster too.

Saint Andrews Shopping

  • Fabulous teas

    I loved this little shop . They had the most amazing variety of teas ...many made locally , like their blueberry teas. They had lots of variety, it was hard to choose.

  • Try the fudge

    Thye advertise Christmas things upstairs but we didn't get past the homemade fudge . 27 varieties and you can sample loads . I liked the orange /chocolate

  • Don't Forget Insurance

    If your current health insurance doesn't cover you while your abroad, you should consider getting international travel insurance just in case something should go wrong.

    Favorite thing: St.Andrews is a summertime touristic little town. The main street offers a lot of (touristic) shops. From St.Andrews you can make a Whale Watch. That's something you have to do! Along the beach you can walk a beach-trail, but local residents has blocked this trail, because the trail is on their property!
    It's better to go to Minister Island and see some deer.
