Visited this view point as part of an island tour. The road is paved but narrow and winding. Once at the top of the road, there is a small turn around point where I would recommend positioning your vehicle for the return trip before proceeding. This can be reached by private vehicle but a tour guide will give you a... More

I was staying in Tahiti but my flight was not leaving until 10pm, so I decided to take a ferry over to Moorea. When going over the tour options I chose an ATV tour as it was something I had not done. My Travel Agent set me up with Dammon and I am so happy she did. Dammon was hysterical.... More

We did this as a hike, rather than an ATV/4WD tour, and loved it. It's a little hard to find, but if you're coming from a cruise ship, as we did, take a left from the port and head roughly a mile down the road. There's a long driveway on the right hand side. When we were there, a woman... More

Great tour !! Very informative, experienced and a friendly tour guide, the views are amazing. The visit to the pearl shop at the end was educational and a great place to purchase that black pearl :-)

getting up there is quite a trip. I was charged 200 XPF for entering, but there is no sign or anything, so maybe you wont be charged. Bit difficult to find.

We went as part of FranckyFranck's tour. I would not recommend walking up in the heat. The road is a bit rough but concrete most of the way. Great view and good panorama.
