Tiny St. Peter's Catholic Church
78-6681A Alii Drive, Kahaluu-Keauhou, Big Island, Hawaii

Also known as the “little blue church,” St. Peter’s Church in Hawaii is a far cry from the monumental St. Peter’s Church in Manhattan. Built in 1899, this modest church contains only 12 pews, has a corrugated tin roof, and is primarily used as a wedding chapel. The real grandeur, however, comes from the ocean view behind the church, visible from the inside through a stained glass window. There’s also something magical about seeing the silhouette of the tiny church at dusk, with its single modest spire pointing up to an endless expanse of sky. One glimpse and you’ll understand why this very spot was once sacred ground for the ancient Hawaiians and why, today, it’s a coveted location for nuptials.
