Must see this beautiful view!

Went as part of the Alberts 4x4 tour and what a peaceful place. Fun ride to the top and what a view.

This was such a beautiful view and I would say only surpassed by the view as you come in to land by plane.

My wife and I went there on our own, with a rental car and then hiking. We paid the entrance of 200CPF p.p., since this mountain is on private land, to a very nice lady who lives across the street (if she is not there, pay your way in into the mailbox). What I liked: + very nice views +... More

Well worth the unpaved, precipitous ride up to this set where Opunohu Bay and Cook Bay can be seen. Last few hundred feet are trail/stairs (with partial guide rope) BUT GO anyway. Incredible photo opps.

We stopped at Magic Mountain as part of a 4WD tour, and the views from the top of the mountain were fantastic. Bring your camera! Belvedere also offers great views.

you cannot drive up the mountain with normal car, only 4 wheelers or jeeps. The views are outstanding! If you are walking it is winding straight up- will need to take a break here and there. It is not well marked to find the entrance, but worth going.

This is a very steep climb. It's a private drive and we hired a tour guide driver to ascend. I would not recommend walking up or down. However, when you get there, you are still not done because there is more of a walk. It's worth the effort because the views are spectacular.

The ride to the top of the Magic Mountain is not for those who rented a car, it is quite an experience. From the top you have a 360 degree view. Recommended
