However you get to the top, get there and take as... More

Get there with a excursion or by your own car, but if you stay in Moorea you should get to this point.

After a 5' drive on a narrow but nice and winding road, we arrived to the Belvedere where we could have a nice view (weather permitted) over the bays of Cook and Opunohu split by the mount Rotui. A bit far to clearly see the lagoon colours but still worth the short drive. You can also go thru some mountain... More

Visited Mt Belvedere Lookout and was able to take several panoramic shots. Breath taking to say the least. A must see if you travel to Moorea.

Sightseeing must when on Moorea. Road to the Belvedere is an easy drive and the views of the mountains and bays are stunning. Highly recommended.

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!
