Such a beautiful place, built with love from the most beautiful materials available. It is still being used as a church today.

Worth a visit to see the inlaid pearl and design. Does not stand out along the street, blending in to the environment.

What a sight when you drive along this sometimes rough gravel road. Nicely looked after church with an excellent story behind it as well as the looked after surroundings. We very much enjoyed our visit.

I visited this church on my way to Cape Leveque it is very beautiful and just has a special feeling inside. It is on the edge of a very small village and has an interesting history.

We went inside the church and there is the most amazing pearl shell alter. I am talking about the Catholic Church ( not sure if it the same one as Sacred Heart ) but just in case it is I wrote these comments.

I'm not religious, so my interest was merely from a historical perspective. The inside of the church is decorated with mother-of-pearl. In my opinion, it's a little gaudy (sorry to all Beagle Bay residents) but the community is reliant on tourists to ensure the building can be maintained and restored as needed, so make the effort to stop and see...

I visited here on a kimberley wild day trip and i just fell in love. Its a must to visit. With an altar designed out of pearl shells it is a sight.

A well kept church with local character .... the theme is Pearl Shells. It was touching to see how the local environment has been effectively used to blend into a church.
