Fodor's Review

This tiny oceanfront chapel by Kahaluu Beach Park, with its crisp white-and-blue trim and old-fashioned steeple, sits next to the site of an ancient heiau, now marked by a dry-stack rock wall. This is not the church's original location, however. In 1912, it was dismantled and carried here piece by piece from a site across from Magic Sands Beach. Due to past issues with vandalism, the church is locked at all times other than for mass on Saturday morning at 7:30.
