Regardless of your faith, you will enjoy this excellent structure made of glass walls and with unbelievable view. You could spend an afternoon in the peninsula visiting the chapel, have lunch at one of the local restaurants and end up watching the sunset from Starbucks at the Golden Cove.

As soon as you see the building, you'll instantly recognize it as a classic Frank Lloyd Wright. It's airy and breathtaking. If I have ever imagined a sanctuary, this exceeds expectations. Definitely worth the stop. While you're here, head across the street to Abalone Cove Park for more amazing views.

This is a great little place to stop whilst heading along the cost road....stop in a take in the views and the unusual church. there was a wedding there when we visited so access was restricted (rightly so!) but still worth stopping by

What a lovely oasis. The entire property is so beautiful. The open air church is often used for weddings... so call ahead so you can gain entry when services are not held. Founder has extremely fascinating background-check it out in the welcome center.

While planning a spring break trip, I had read on Budget Travel about Wayfayers. It looked beautiful online and I can tell you that the online reviews and pictures do it no justice. First, we went on Palm Sunday, which meant that there was a reenactment of the final days of Christ that was wonderful! The actors were fantastic, the... More

Wow! I can't think of a more beautiful chapel than this. The openness of the chapel poised on a bluff overlooking the Pacific is just spectacular. Do watch the calendar though because if there're weddings or baptisms as in my case, the chapel is closed to all but those guests. I'm going to spend more time next time coordinating my... More

The chapel,the garden and view is worth a visit. Lots of parking. There is a small gift shop you can visit. A very nice place for weddings if you are thinking to get hitched but not for a large crowd. I am sure on weekends you need to book way in advance.

Glass chapel overlooking the Pacific, breathtaking. Plenty of parking and beautiful grounds, this would be a gorgeous place for a small wedding ceremony.
