Great lookout hike

About 30 minute hike up some steep roads, but very worth the view. The sign is easy to miss, as it's small. $2 honesty box and great views.

Breathtaking views, a nice little hike. So worth a whole view of the island and a bit romantic to share with a new spouse!

This tour was one of the best things we did on our trip to French Polynesia. We had a group of 12 so we took 6 of the 4 wheelers and went on a 3 hour excursion of beautiful Moorea. Damon, the tour guide made the trip fun and interesting. We went up to Belvedere lookout where you can see... More

Go with Albert ATV tours, it's the best way to get up the mountain. The ATV tour is three hours and will certainly be worth it.

We got to see the bulk of the island by ATV on this excursion. There were several stops along the way. We stopped at the location where the famous "Mutiny on the Bounty" scene was filmed, we stopped at Belvidere Point, stopped off at a pineapple plantation (take some cash along with you; there is fresh juice and jam to...

Magic Mountain was one of our stops on the "ALBERT TOURS ATV TOUR" and it was just stunning. It is a must see in Moorea.

Very bumpy poorly maintained road up and down. Considering every tourist seems to go, you would think some effort to make access better would be done. Private land is no excuse as they charge for the view.
