Some reviews said the road was bad. Not so. We had a tiny car with miniture wheels and it did just fine. It is not paved for a short stretch, but there aren't really any holes or ruts. Its a fine sand road ad a great way to get out in the jungle.

We visited as a part of a 4x4 tour, we got to learn and see about the history of their farming industries in the islands and about the harvest cycles of pineapples. We also got to taste some picked right there along the roadside. DELICIOUSLY sweet! Also very spiritual and serene presence there..

If you are doing the Belvedere Lookout you should include this route to see the pineapple plantations up close. However, I wouldn't go out of my way to do just this drive. Great views, but you are on a bumpy, dirt road most of the way so easy to give a miss.

The roads up the mountain and around the farms are very scenic on their own.But the highlight is where the paved road ends at a scenic look out on Mount Belvedere. The view of the two northern bays and the mountain sitting between looks like it was painted on a giant canvas. God did a great job on this art project. Now Im no rookie and have seen a lot in my years but the way God put the together the colors of sea, forest, sky and mountain will may you too ask is what I am seeing really there. You wont be able to just take a photo or two as you will keep trying to capture what your heart and eyes can see but no photo can ever capture the magnificence of it all.

We inadvertently did this hike...but boy it was worth it! We drove up to Belvedere lookout, and started following downhill hiking trails (no admission fees to any of them!) from the parking lot, to see where they would go. We walked for about 2 hours, criss-crossing trails several times (trails here have labels at the start of each trail but just colored markers everywhere else, so you need to pay attention to marker colors!), passing impressive marae sites, and going deep through tropical forest. Just after passing several marae, we came out into a clearing, which afforded a beautiful vista of a huge pineapple plantation with lovely mountains behind it. We kept on walking downhill, coming across a tree-top ropes course and Opunohu Ranch. The walk direction that we chose had one down side - we came out at the bottom of the hill at Opunohu Ranch, and our car was still up at Belvedere parking lot, so we had to either backtrack or walk the paved road, back uphill to the lookout, to retrieve the car! We chose the paved road, which also had some nice scenery (agricultural college, other marae, etc..) . The Route des Ananas hike, up or down, is not particularly difficult...there was no actual "climbing" involved, but there is quite a large change in altitude; I would recommend comfortable hiking shoes or sneakers (no sandals), and perhaps have someone stage the car somewhere to retrive hikers when done. The "down and then up" walk described here took about 3 hours total; All in all, we got a nice workout, and saw some absolutely stunning sights! Take a camera! This would be best on a sunny day, but maybe do it in morning, before sun gets too hot, I suspect rain or drizzle would make the trails muddy and slippery.

When we did the drive, we only saw two pineapple fields (no plantations) with no pineapples growing. The roads are not paved for about ½ of the drive so it hardly seemed worth the efforts of navigating potholes.

Pineapples, pineapples, pineapples! This road to Belvedere Viewpoint is gorgeous and worth the time to see the interior of Moorea. Very lush and inspiring on a sunny day!

During our 4x4 tour, we stopped along the road to admire the mountainous interior of Moorea and learn a little bit about the island's pineapple plantations. ! plant will produce 1 fruit each year, for 4 years, before requiring a year free of the plant for the soil to replenish it's nutrients.

We usually take friends through here once, as the "road" is rough and tough on the car springs! It is interesting to see the red soil in contrast to the green pineapples.

From there we go to the Belverdere from which you get the best view of the two bays far below. Although the road is sealed it is far too narrow for a major tourist route.

We always stop at the Agricultural Lycee and have a ginger sorbet. Last time they had run out of it. We went for a walk around the Agricultural setup which was interesting.
