Beautiful old church, built in the 1600s. Head round the back to explore the grave yard & tombs. The back of the graveyard also offers a great view of the ocean.

The church itself is somewhat ordinary. The graveyard in the back is more interesting with the gravestones and tombs. Lots of history here. The views are amazing

This is an old church dating back to the 1600's. The views over the ocean are stunning. The visit is short. The setting under the old trees are beautiful.

Visited this church as part of a one day cruise ship tour. Typical look and feel of an old church, well kept up. Well manicured property with some historically significant graves. Worth a visit if you are interested in this type of history.

There isn't a cost associated with visiting the church. You can freely walk around the grounds and even enter the church. But it would be nice to leave a donation which would go towards the upkeep of the church :)
