Went up in the mountain with the Lady in Blue. It was a great small adventure for an hour after our beachbrake. Lucky with the weather , no clouds up there that day.

We visited Belvedere lookout on the ATV moorea tours & definitely would recommend them to see this lookout spot. It's up a high mountain & overlooks the 2 bays in Moorea.

Great views and photo opportunities from the lookout. Can get crowned when ships are in port however well worth the drive

Worth a visit while on the island. It's on most organized tours of the island and that's probably the best way to get up there but you can hike it too.

Went here as part of our tour and thought the view was great. There is a small parking lot at the lookout for cars - but watch out for people walking about. You’ll need about 10-15 minutes here!

We hiked this in about 45minutes, it's an easy hike with big payoffs in the end. I believe you also go here on the 4-wheelers and some of the other guided day trips. We took a cab from our hotel and had them come back...More

The view is amazing. Definitively worth the drive. There are tours that can help you get there or you can arrive on your own with a rental car or scooter.

This is the most popular view point of the island of Moorea. Easy to get to by rental car, roadster or other vehicles. I'm not sure if there is a time less busy. Maybe later in the day after the tours for the cruise ship...More

We stopped here while doing a tour of the island and the view was simply breathtaking! If you have a panorama setting on your camera make sure to use it while up here.

Hi, We did the same tour T Sorren described, only we used Albert Tours. You can find them on-line. Our tour guide was a local man, very knowledgable & a pleasure to travel with. I know nothing about a Tiki village. All of... 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.
