Great view of Island and the stunning volcanic peaks. Easily got to by sealed narrow road. You will probably share the view with an entire cruise ship if timed wrong though and the viewing platform is quite small

Great way to see the panorama of the Island, bays and ocean. Fun to take a jeep ride up to the top of the lookout.

This is a must see stop on the island. We hired a driver and jeep when we got off of our cruise ship and she took us for a fabulous tour. When we arrived here a bus tour was just leaving - good bye crowds :-) The views from Belvedere Lookout are awe inspiring and this is what you hope... More

While on a leisurely scooter daytrip around Moorea, we took the road up to Belevedere. We got very lucky - it's often cloudy and rainy in the center of the island, but we arrived at a clear time with just a bit of fine mist. The 360 degree view is wonderful - in one direction you see the two island... More

great lookout point. But at the time there was a little spot right there in the middle that has a cordoned off red and white striped sticker which no matter what keep appearing in our pictures. If only that is fixed (and taken away), this is an awesome spot for pictures.

Nice view of both bays, I would recommend to go on a sunny day- not cloudy! You have to drive upto it, we took a scooter but some quad bike tours also go up to the summit

Lovely place for photos and beautiful views. Lots of wild chickens running around which was kind of neat

It's a high spot on the side of a mountain that let's you see both bays and most of the North side of the island as long as it's not cloudy. If scootering make sure you rent the larger displacement scooter NOT the 50cc ones. Especially if riding 2 up. Stop off at the Agricultural Center on your way back... More

Easy to get to. Great pictures of the two coves. These were some of our most favorite photos of our trip. There were some mosquitos in the parking lot.
