We arranged a 4x4 safari tour through our hotel (Intercontinental), and our first stop was Magic Mountain. You really need an expert guide and proper vehicle to access this breathtaking viewpoint, and it's well worth it! Our tour also visited the Belvedere, where you get a great view of Cook's Bay and Opunohu Bay on either side of Mt. Rotui,... More

This is the best view on Moorea. It's a gorgeous spot on a clear day. Highly recommend making it up here while on Moorea. We went up on our ATV tour. I could see it being a bit of a hike if you do it on foot but it's doable from what I can tell. Most people I saw though... More

This is all about the views. Make sure it is not raining if it is the rainy season. The views, particularly out to the sea, of the coral and lagoon are fabulous. A narrow windy drive needs care, but well worth the effort. More spectacular than Belvedere.

This was part of our ATV Quad tour and is really only accessible by Quad or by foot. Probably takes hours to get by foot, so, we were glad we joined the Quad tour. We highly recommend ATV Karl with Louis (pronounced "Lui") A'pa as the guide. Best activity we did at French Polynesia.

You can take 4WD and ATV tours, a lil bit expensive though. Being budget friendly kind, we decided to hike it up. Its half hr hike each way, like 1.5 miles but its steep, hence strenous. But you will be rewarded with sweeping views of endless ocean, simply breathtaking. We were initially confused between Magic Mountain and Belvedere lookout. FYI... More

A must see when on Moorea. The drive up to the mountain is not for for the faint of heart and if you have motion sickness be careful but the view is amazing and worth evry foot of the meandering drive.

Worth the visit. Beautiful view. Would recommend doing it with ATV or jeep tour. Can be difficult to get there by yourself.
