After a hike at Abalone Cove our hiking group visited the Chapel. It was the highlight of my day; a peaceful, restful, quite spot of great beauty. The gardens/trees were perfectly manicured and the small chapel is quite stunning (designed by the son of Frank Lloyd Wright). The Bells in the tower sound every 15 minutes. For a few minutes...

Worth a stop, just for the views. Serene and peaceful and beautiful. I've been visiting Wayfarers for many years. A friend was married here in a gorgeous ceremony, and was very happy with the services provided.

My wife and I were married at this beautiful place in June. It's small, elegant & views that can not be beat. I would not have chosen any other place to exchange our vows. The staff was very helpful through the process and the ceremony was beautiful. If you're looking to have a large ceremony this place most likely won't... More

We used to visit this spot frequently when we lived in the area over 40 years ago. It hasn't changed much over tha time. On a recent family get together, we stopped again. It's a great spot for pictures and to spend some peaceful time. It's just a beautiful spot and small chapel with a great view of the ocean.... More

This is a neighborhood small chapel. Most of the visitors come here for non-religious reason. This chapel locates at a beautiful location over see the ocean, the cliffs, and the beautiful coastlines. Many people choose to have wedding ceremony here. In the weekends, there may be some wedding ceremony going on there. When there is no on-going event, you may... More

No matter what your religion, you need to make a stop this magical place at some point in your lifetime. The views are breathtaking and the church itself is an amazing piece of architecture. Best place in the world to get married. I've also been there for Sunday mass and it very lovely. The gardens are gorgeous. There is nothing... More

This small, lovely chapel has many great features if you know what you are seeing. Of course, first and foremost, this is a house of God. Anyone who would rate this as "Terrible" has no sense of propriety. We are not particularly religious, but respect those who are and enjoy visiting God's house in places around the world. Besides, it... More

Decided to drive to Palos Verdes to see the chapel,what a scenic drive, the road is like a mini roller coaster with bikers too. This chapel is beautiful having the ocean as a background, what a nice place to recharge the trouble mind. Definitely will come but not on Saturday since a perfect venue for wedding.

The church was tinier than I expected in spite of it being called a chapel. When inside the views were mostly upwards and actually felt a little claustrophobic to me. I think some of the trees actually were too overgrown and took away from the visual expanse. We arrived before a scheduled wedding, so we were fortunate that we were... More

It's a truly beautiful location and when you walk in the church you feel connected to a higher power. I go there sometimes in the day just to sit and feel the light surrounding me.
