Anchored in the Bay Opunohu headed out to walk up to the belvedere. Breathless view of the islands' mountains as well as the 2 bays. On the way stop to have a juice or ice cream on the Moorea School of Agriculture. Delicia soursop ice cream. This unmissable stop. You can go back the way you came easier access, you... More

We rented a dune buggy for this adventure so you can hit some of the unpaved areas. The view is beautiful, but the trip up to it made the adventure. Have your camera ready, because you'll see many photo opportunities.

Beautiful lookout @ dawn or sunset. Best view of Moorea, romantic memory you will cherish. Rent your own car and drive up on your own for your visit.

Worth the trip to view beautiful Moorea. The trail is rickety and quite an experience in itself. Great views all the way up!

Traveling up the mountain thru the winding road to the top the view was worth the trip. The views were amazing! Had a great time.

This was part of an excursion purchased through my cruise line, however, I believe there are local tour guides available or you can do this on your own. The advantage of using a tour guide is the additional information you will get. It is not always just about the view. The stories told by tour guides/locals can make the trip... More

My husband and I rented a car for the day. This was our first stop and it was beyond beautiful. We got to be at the highest point where a car could drive. If you are planning to come, bring a lock with you. You can place it on the fence like they do back in Paris. This way a... More

Nice high point to take some lovely photos of the bays. The road is good, and was no problem to go up the two of us on a scooter. Make sure to take our anti-mosquito spray with you.

The view from the Belvedere Lookout is lovely. You can see right over to both bays - on a fine day of course. You do need your own transport to get there - we included it on a private tour of the island. You have to go there if you are on Moorea

The rep of Avis car rental at Intercontinental recommended us to go up to the lookup before 10 AM to avoid other tourist groups, we took the advise and drove the tiny Ford Fiesta. The place is easy to find with the map provided by Avis, and on its way up you will see the Fruit Plantation where you can... More
