Belvedere Lookout, Moorea

See panoramic views of Moorea at Belvedere Lookout. With uninterrupted sights of Cook's Bay, Opunohu Bay, Mt. Totui, and the lush vegetation of Opunohu Valley, the viewpoint offers great photographic opportunities. From sunrise to sunset, the extensive panorama takes in much of the island and its coastline. Bring a picnic with you, or head to the souvenir and snack stand before heading further into the hills or making your way back down. The point is easily accessible by car or on foot, as well as being a stop-off destination for a range of tour groups.

  • This was an easy drive up the mountain in our rental car. When you get to the top you can see two different bays- Belvedere Bay and Openahu Bay. Gorgeous views all around. At the top there is a fence ...  more »
  • I took in the views during a bus tour, so I was only able to stop for 10 minutes and look around. It was a sunny, beautiful day, so I was able to enjoy quite a bit of the panorama but I think the expe...  more »
  • We picked the jeep route due to not wanting to rip up the terrain with 4 wheelers. Smooth, scenic ride and the views from the top were absolutely beautiful. At the lookout are many hiking trails and p...  more »

  • It is a super sketchy drive up if there is traffic. The road is not always big enough for 2 compact cars. That is a thrill in itself. The lookout when you get there is amazing. Well worth the drive up. There are some hikes you can take up the mountain if you want. We did not opt for this and you'd need bug spray/lotion if you do hike.
  • Stunning view from here! From the parking area there is a trail walk through the forest where you will see amazing plants, trees and vegetation.
  • A short drive uphill and you're looking at the best view of Moorea in French Polynesia! Enjoy both major bays, mountains and lush greenery in every direction! An easy drive!
  • A very scenic spot and rightly the most marketed spot of the island. Road is completely paved till the point. We covered this spot as part of atv tour of island. It was cloudy that day, but view was still amazing. If You plan to do the same, contact Albert Directly, he gives discount for direct booking.
  • A great place to have a short walk in the jungle and have a beautiful outlook onto two beautiful bays. There was a lot of people, but you could still get beautiful unpopulated shots of the country.
