Vainupea Chapel was consecrated in the summer of 1893. However, the first written mention of the wooden beach chapel dates back to 1741.
The chapel was empty for years after the Second World War until Lääne-Viru Road Administration and Valentin Transtok launched restoration works in 1988. The restored chapel was re-consecrated in 1989. Today, the chapel is a popular venue for concerts and weddings.
