This was part of a cruse tour excursion. The views from here are spectacular, but with all of the tour groups it got crowded. The road is curvy and steep in places, it is a wonder how those bus drivers did it. At the lookout...More

Lovedddd this view. Seeing the two bays and beautiful Mo’orea all around, it was breathtaking. We drove up with ATVS and it was so worth it. Make sure to bring bug spray though!

I would suggest you rent a car rather than going via tour group. Go early before the tour buses come as there isn't much room for parking.

We were not sure if we wanted to do this. Was the road too steep? Was it too curvy? How long was it? The road is paved the entire way. It’s not very long. Maybe took us 15 minutes to drive. There were a lot...More

It's a windy road to the Lookout, but well worth the effort. Go early before the tour buses - there isn't much room for parking.

I would suggest renting a car as the travel agents will want to book a tour. Don’t do it. This is one of many places to visit on your ride around the island. It’s a great spot BUT it’s all about the weather and visibility....More

Such a glorious view of this superb landmark. Accessible by foot, bike or car. A must see while on the island of Moorea.

This view was the highlight of buggy trip around Moorea. We drove our buggies to the top and the view is stunning. You can see two bays flanking a mountain. There are tons of people, but be patient enough to get a perfect shot.

Probably the most famous tour to visit. Excellent views. Lots of visitors. Well paved roads to get there. Probably always a little crowded.
