Wish we could have attending a service in this beautiful place! Also the view of the ocean from the church is gorgeous.

We enjoyed our visit. Great small wedding venue. However it does not compare to the chapel in Hot Springs at the Garvan Gardens. The ocean view makes the setting. It is not to be missed if you are driving the PV peninsula.

This is a one of a kind landmark. Very much worth visiting. The chapel is very close to the Terranea Resort.
