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.

We came here on an ATV and the views here are superb. The ride up is a bit steep and you will need to come either on an ATV or a 4-wheel drive vehicle. The last part is very steep. On a clear day, you can see views of the Hilton and Intercontinental hotels and take in the various colors... More
