Lucky to be here right before Christmas and joined in the Caroling at Chapel by the Sea, all decorated inside and out, and the service was packed, many sat outside. It was simply lovely, Hot cider was served outdoors after the service. Just a lovely way to celebrate the Christmas before the actual day.

Our first visit was at night and it was beautiful decorated for Christmas. We returned next morning and also toured the historical cemetery on site. So quaint and beautiful.

A beautiful and quiet place of worship. We came on a cool night in December so we were there all by ourselves. The Chapel was decorated nicely for Christmas and the outdoors lit up beautifully. The only sounds were from our kids exploring the grounds and the ocean just over the sand dune. a very calming and tranquil stop on... More

I like to visit the Chapel during the day - find it very calming. But the best is the Christmas Eve service at 6:30 pm. The lights are enchanting and there is nothing like singing Christmas carols while hearing waves crashing on the beach in the background.

Our first visit to the chapel was at daylight and we met the friendly pastor who recommended us to come back when it's dark. So we did and it was absolutely stunning. We also decided to join the Christmas eve celebration and it was the most beautiful worship I have ever witnessed. Beware of the mosquitoes, though! Bring repellent!
