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.

Beautiful spot on the island looking over the reef and lagoons with a clear view of the mountains behind. We did spot whales from the lookout too! If you do an ATV tour they will usually come here, best way to see the island. Well worth the trip up

Great views of both bays in Moorea. If you are scared of heights might not be the best place to go. I wore flip flops and it was fine, although runners were recommended

The bumpy road to the top of this mountain is quite an adventure! Once you reach the end of the road, you hike up a narrow trail to the very top of the mountain. The view from the top is spectacular!

Go there with Albert Tours on ATV, great views and adventure on the way. The guide Louis was very nice. There is no better view in the island.

I recommend going with a tour guide up this mountain. We went with Franky Frank and I felt safe riding with him inside the truck. There are some steep turn going up but once you're up there the view is breathtaking.

We visited as part of an ATV tour with Albert Tours. It was by far the best view on the island. Breathtaking lagoon views, as well as views of the mountains.
