“Great view!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

Part of our AITO 4X4 tour. Not quite as adventurous to get to as Magic Mountain but an equally spectacular view.

“Sweeping Views of Moorea & Its Lovely Bays”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

After a short, windy drive uphill, you'll arrive at a small parking lot. Check out the roosters running around. There's a viewing platform and plenty of photo opportunities here.

“Viewed on ATV tour”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

Not bad...nice view! I heard it was the highlight of the ATV tour, but did not feel it lived up to my expectation or what I had heard.

“A Beautiful View”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

We took the Opunohu route up to Belvedere lookout. It is a narrow but well paved road up to the lookout point. We took our little Citroen compact rental car up with no problem. The view at the top overlooks the bays. It doesn't go up as high into the mountain as I would have guessed, but it's beautiful none the less. There are two trails on the backside of the lookout point. I'm not really sure where they go as it was way too muddy during February to trek through it. We tried to take the tour at the agricultural school but found out that the tour is in French only, and then could not figure out where and when it was even if we did want to go. One of the cheapest things to do on the island.

“A Must See!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

If you are visiting Moorea, you need to visit this lookout, the view is amazing. You are able to see both bays, with the mountain in the middle. The drive is a bit steep, but worth it.
