Awesome view

Great view with perfectly marked trail heads. The trails are better marked than Los Angeles. 4K winding road from main road.

An awfully skinny road leading up to the point which made it difficult when you met another car coming the opposite way. Nice view when you're up there but couldn't see as much as I was expecting. Go for a drive if you have hired a car but don't make a special trip

I don't know which is more spectacular, Magic Mountain or the Belvedere Lookout, but one thing is for sure...you have to do both! Beyond these two attractions, the other parts of the island tour pale in comparison. If you don't do both, you may as well stay on the beach!

We rented a car for the day and took the easy drive up to the lookout. Just an absolutely beautiful view of the bays of Moorea. Definitely worth the stop. PS: Renting a car on Moorea is really easy and the roads are easy to navigate.

We went on a 4x4 Safari and our guide was incredible. He shared great Tahitian history took us to some amazing spots and views. We picked this instead of the ATV since we had younger kids. The view was incredible, it's a must do while visiting Moorea!!

Just a quick drive from anywhere on the island and well worth it. The view is amazing and gorgeous! A must see! Stop by one of the local fruit/produce stands and enjoy a cool and refreshing coconut water and then partake in the fresh coconut.....mmmm good!

Helene is amazing! I would highly recommend her to anyone that is looking for high quality, stunning and artistic photos! She exceeded my expectations by far! I wanted to hire a photographer to capture our honeymoon with the gorgeous backdrop of Moorea and was lucky enough to stumble across a Trip Adviser forum that mentioned her name. I then googled...

Worth the drive - road narrow in parts with lots of hairpin bends and we went just before 10am which seemed to beat the rush as the travel groups started to arrive!

The views from this lookout is amazing! The drive was only a few minutes from our resort and I'm glad we didn't miss it!
