Beautiful glass chapel with well kept garden grounds and amazing views of the Pacific Ocean, Catalina Island, and the Palos Verdes Coast.

The chapel itself is smaller than it seems in photos. There is a fountain and garden, and benches with a great view of the ocean. But it is not easy to reach; unless you are very interested in architecture or going to an event at the chapel, it is questionable whether it is worth the drive.

This is both a beautifully built building as well as a place of worship set within its natural environment.

Wow... gorgeous architecture, amazing views and a staff that will help! I had to coordinate three weddings here and I am impressed at how perfectly every wedding goes. The location has its own on site coordinators that make sure everything runs smoothly. This place is like clock work because they have an impacted schedule. Be sure to give your photographer...

I love bringing my guests to the Wayfarers' Chapel. The chapel's design is beautifully set amidst the evergreens. The views are spectacular from the chapel. Be careful of weddings on the weekends. The chapel is roped off during ceremonies.

Always busy because its a popular wedding place. The setting is beautiful which overlooks the ocean and coast. The chapel blends to the surrounding garden and trees. Theres also a welcome visitor center with information and display. Its a MUST stop if you drive on Palos Verdes Drive for a leisure drive.

One can walk across the street after visiting the Abalone Cove Park to visit this church. If there are no service, one can walk inside the church. There is a garden in the back.
