This was well worth the view, but it would be smart to combine it with another tour, such as the Three Coconut Trail hike, which we did. Michael was our guide for that, and it really added to the day, to climb a mountain and...More

We were taken here as part of our inner island safari tour. We did the 30 minute walk through the forest which was well worth it. Photos don't really capture the panorama...

We had a small hire car and drove up for a look, as we were staying in Papetoai. Slow ascent, as we had to follow other small cars, mopeds and ATVs at various points. Only a 4 Klm trip, but seemed much longer. The views...More

This lookout offers a perfect view of both of the bays Moorea is known for. Accessible via a good (albeit steep) road you can visit with your own vehicle or taxi. There are hiking trails up the mountain too if you are so inclined. We...More

My husband and I took a motor scooter ride up to Belvedere, considered the magic mountain by locals. The ride itself was incredibly enjoyable as you are surrounded at the lower area by pineapple plantations. As you wind your way up the mountain there are...More

In my opinion i would say it's to far to walk. In fact it would be a very expensive taxi ride. I would call them and ask about a shuttle.
