We took our scooter up to Belvedere lookout but wouldn't suggest trying it with a 50cc scooter, definitely need a 125cc. Beautiful photos and the drive up on the scooter was fine if you drive carefully.

It`s worth renting a car or cycling up - this view is free! We were lucky to meet a retired teacher there who gave us some insights on the Island. Near there is the Lycee Agricole also worth a visit you can stroll safely around the grounds for hours and check the excellent work they do.

You can access the Belvedere without a tour if you rent transportation. The trip up to the lookout is worth it for the amazing views of the two bays.

We rented a car for the duration of our stay on Moorea and drove up to the top of the mountain. Nice drive. There is an alternative way down, take a right towards the pineapple fields and you will end up right in front of the grocery store where you can stock up for the evening entertainment. And don't forget... More

We took a Jungle Safari with Tom of Albert Tours, which included a ride to the lookout. It was a steep ride up, but the sights rewarded us with the most breathtaking views.

Nice view of the two bays, but not breathtaking. Go if you have a car, it's nice to see the forest all around there

Went to Belvedere Lookout on 4x4 safari with Albert Tours. The view is simply stunning! Highly recommend this tour as you get to see the heart of Mo'orea & go places it's hard to drive to!

Great views of the two bays - good spot for photos! Best to go on a clear day. We went on an ATV tour - it's a popular spot!

We saw this while on our ATV tour and it was definitely worth a stop. Beautiful view! There is also a little ice cream shop on the way and the vanilla ice cream is amazing!
