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.

  • We visited the belvedere of the magic mountain on a trip and it is definitely breathtaking. The point of view of the ocean and the Bay of Cook is just WOW! I recommend to undertake a tour to this place because it's not very accessible; the road is hidden and it must be used to practice. Our tour also took us to an another Lookout, the agricultural college and pineapple planting. A very nice afternoon to discover Moorea.

  • Called Magic Mountain just because the view is "magic". OK, maybe a little higher than that of the Belvedere, but frankly it's not worth it, considering the kind of way that needs to be done to get there!! Climb almost vertically, bad roads (walking on two strips of asphalt in the midst of the stones) and a peak on high ravines. Moreover, a lot of hairpin bends! For a picture of a minute, lets get carsick for hours.
