Visited this spot as part of the ATV tour and it is incredible! What a magical view. However you choose to get to this spot it is absolutely wonderful. Pictures cannot do this place justice.

We visited Magic Mountains twice in March. First time we came during Franckyfranck 4x4 tour. It was very thrilling ride. The road is steep, but Franckyfranck is a great driver. He also very knowledgeable and provides great entertainment with his stories. You need to walk a little bit to the top, some of the earlier reviews a bit exaggerated: it’s... More

Seems like being on top of the world. It is a rough trip up the mountain, but well worth the view when you get to the top. You can see all around the island and the beautiful lagoon and ocean below. We went as part of a tour from the Oceania ship Marina.

We came here on our honeymoon with Albert Tours who did a half day island tour. It was a beautiful panorama view of the crystal blue sea and landscape below. However, there is only a narrow rope suspended on poles at the edge and no guard rail with a long way down. The path to the view was a bit... More

This mountain has an amazing view of the surrounding area. I don't know if you can get there other than by ATV, but it is worth it. Definitely recommend it!

Wild ride up the mountain..definitely go in dry weather. The road would be scary and slippery in the wet. Short steep walk/climb at the end..well worth it

From this point you can see most of the island and it has wonderful views. This is part of Albert's ATV tour or you can have cab drop you off here and pay $2 to hike up it. It will take about 30-45 min to hike.
