It's a high spot on the side of a mountain that let's you see both bays and most of the North side of the island as long as it's not cloudy. If scootering make sure you rent the larger displacement scooter NOT the 50cc ones....More

Easy to get to. Great pictures of the two coves. These were some of our most favorite photos of our trip. There were some mosquitos in the parking lot.

Can get a little crowded because everyone stops there. Lots of big tour buses with lots of people. You have to struggle to get a picture.

You cannot be in Moorea and missed this lookout. The ride up to this view is enjoyable. You do need a car to go up or be a good hiker to walk up. On your way up, you can stop and admire some "marae". And...More

This was another picturesque place on the island. There is horse back riding you can do too. Make sure to go on a sunny day to get some beautiful photos.

Incredible views of Cooks Bay and Opunohu Bay...and the interior of the island. Be careful as you're driving up and down the road to the Belvedere, as it is somewhat narrow, and cars may come speeding around the corners.

Really interesting view. We went here on our ATV tour. Getting to the lookout was as fun as seeing the view.

In my opinion i would say it's to far to walk. In fact it would be a very expensive taxi ride. I would call them and ask about a shuttle.
