4.9
#1 of 16 in Nature in French Polynesia
Head up Magic Mountain for extensive views of the coastline, towns, and coral reefs of Moorea. Take an ATV tour up the mountain or hike to its peak for panoramic views of the surrounding scenery--you may even spot a whale breeching close to the shoreline. The lush vegetation covering its slopes extends into the valley, providing superb photographic opportunities, with rich greens and light blues dominating the landscape. Enjoy a picnic while watching boats come in and out of the harbor, or simply soak up the relaxing way of life on the island, seen from above.

    Ascension of the magic mountain walk wins: the elevation is important but the game worth the candle: what point of view, once arrived...

    Worth the visit, small track, all on the road, about 30 min. Vehicles don't climb, except for tours.

Where to stay in Moorea

On Mo'orea, even the budget accommodations enjoy prime beachfront locations on beautiful turquoise lagoons. Camping is the most affordable option, mainly concentrated in the northwest of the island. Family-run pensions (boarding houses) can also offer great, no-frills, budget-friendly lodging--although finding contact details and booking can take a little effort. The biggest draw on Mo'orea, however, remain the luxury beach resorts and overwater bungalows on the lagoons, mostly strung across the island's northern edge. Prices for these start in the mid range, but climb quickly into the high end for the most lavish options.
