One of the most beautiful oceans views along the Pacific Coast Highway - the Wayfarers Chapel which also has a lovely wedding chapel, beautiful rose gardens and a quiet retreat away from the busy cities of Southern California. We really enjoyed the views of the Pacific ocean and a few moments of quiet. I would definitely recommend a stop here... More

I was married in the chapel so may be biased, but it is really the most lovely place with great views. It only takes a few minutes, so if you are close, it's worth it.

Attended a friend's wedding at this beautiful chapel. What a special place. Do try to visit the chapel if you are in the area. It is quite busy with weddings on the weekend, so perhaps stop in during the week or call to see when it is available for visiting.

I lived here way too long before visiting this chapel. It is otherworldly. Beautiful to look at and rest in.

Definitely stop by if you're in the area. The chapel is tiny, but darling, and the location is beautiful. We roamed the grounds taking pictures and enjoying the serenity. It's easy to get in touch with your own spirituality while visiting.
