We rented a scooter & drove to the lookout point. It was beautiful ! We were able to see Cook's bay & the surrounding mountains from there. It was a bit hairy at times on the scooter but well worth the drive.

If on Moorea, you might as well go up there. It was the trailhead for our hike to 3 Coconuts Pass (a much better view!). I would like to have had time to walk through the archeological site on the road up, but first priority...More
