Awesome lookout point at the top of Moorea overlooking the beautiful lagoon and beaches. This is a private road where you have to pay $2 per person to go up. We took a jeep trip up and it was a great ride to the top. There is a small hike at the end to get to the very top. Beautiful!!

Took 4wdr tour by Franky Frank (Pierre was our guide) He was from Moorea and so entertaining and informative. Trip up to this mountain was the highlight of our Moorea visit. Amazing views and awesome photo op. This is not to be missed'

You can do Magic Mountain by yourself without joining a jeep tour if you have a car and are in good shape for an ENTIRELY UPHILL hike. First I have to thank the TripAdvisor reviewers before me who shared their knowledge -- I couldn't have done it myself without their tips they left in this forum. First, finding the trailhead...

We used Frank Frank tours. The entire tour was 4.5 hours. Our driver was a Dutch ex pat and was wonderfully informative. The entire trip was awesome with the capstone being Magic Mountain. On the peak you can view the Intercontinental and Hilton resorts. Elderly and small children will struggle, but definitely worth the effort.

Whether it's hiking by foot or driving a local ATV 4X4, this is a must see to get a glimpse of the island. You will not be dissapointed.

We visited magic mountain as part of a "farm bike" tour with Dammons Tours. The track up is steep and windy but worth the climb.

Definitely not for the faint of heart or to be done on your own, but worth taking the risk as long as you have a good driver. I'm not sure which was worse-backing up the final incline to the top or coming down but I'm so glad we did this. I was glad that we went on a somewhat overcast... More

If you want to check this out, you can't get there via a rental car or scooter!! Go through Alberts ATV tours and they'll bring you here!! You Can't Pass This Up!!! The views are amazing!!!

We went to the top of Magic Mountain with Frankie Frank. What a spectacular view of the two harbors and the coral reef that goes around that side of the island. Do it if you can.

Not sure if the overall experience was worth the view. Again it depends on personal experience. But on a hot day, taking a treacherous terrain to get a view which can be gotten from another spot wasn't totally worth it..
