Saint Peter's Catholic Church - The Little Blue Church in Kahaluu Bay, Hawaii

Saint Peter's Catholic Church - Kahaluu, HawaiiSaint Peter's Catholic Church, also called the "Little Blue Church," is a quaint little chapel sitting in the center of a small garden fronting the ocean in Kahaluu Bay, in West Hawaii. It is a mission church under the Saint Michael the Archangel Catholic Church in Kailua-Kona, the Big Island. The single-story wooden structure is painted white with blue roof, blue trimmings and a tall steeple topped with a white cross.

The church was built in 1889 on the former site of an ancient Hawaiian heiau. Inside the church are a dozen pews and a small pulpit up front. It also features an etched glass window which casts soft glow inside the entire chapel, especially during sunset.

The whimsical architecture and the serene atmosphere inside the church, plus the romantic garden and spectacular ocean views, make the chapel a popular venue for small weddings.

Nearby attractions include Keauhau Beach and other historical churches in the area including Kahikolu Church, Mokuaikaua Church and St. Benedict's Catholic Church.

To get there, take Ali'i Drive south of Kailua-Kona. The church is located at 78-6684 Alii Drive on the ocean side of the road just before Kahaluu Beach Park and the Mile Marker #5.
