The Basics

There are numerous ways to get to the top of the lookout, and while many visitors prefer to hike or take an electric bike up to the top, you can also get there by ATV (or even car if you’re more about the destination than the journey). And if you're still feeling energetic, you can access waterfall and nature treks from the top. Many tours combine a visit to Belvedere with nearby pineapple farms and Magical Mountain.

Fun day on a 4wd! We enjoyed our off road adventures- from the heights where we were able to see the beautiful views to the pineapple farms we enjoyed seeing the island!

We enjoyed an incredible tour of the beautiful island of Moorea. Mario was waiting for us at the tender pier. Our ship was more than an hour late. Thank you Mario for a terrific day in Moorea!

Moorea Shore Excursion: 4WD Tour Including Belvedere Pineapple Farm and Magic Mountain
Our guide Ron was AMAZING! So knowledgeable. Showed us everything we booked and more. The roads were bumpy and steep, but the views were so worth the effort to get there. Minimal walking. We decided it was the best excursion of our whole trip.

Moorea Shore Excursion: 4WD Tour Including Belvedere Pineapple Farm and Magic Mountain
This was an excellent overview of Moorea and much better than anything we booked elsewhere via the cruise ship. Our driver/guide, Ron, Could not have been better. His knowledge of the island was excellent, he went to great pains to avoid getting caught up with other tour vehicles, his driving was reassuringly good and he certainly gave us a fantastic overview of Moorea. This was a tour that was worth taking!

How to Get There

There are two roads leading to Belvedere Lookout, depending on whether you're going from Cook's Bay or Opunohu Bay. While Cook's Bay will take you through pineapple fields and lush vegetation, Opunohu Bay will bring you through Moorea's natural preserve, with the option to stop at the local Agricultural School for some fresh juice and sorbet and jam tastings along the way.

When to Get There

The most popular time to visit is at sunset at around 5:30pm, where you can see the sky and landscape illuminated by a rainbow backdrop of reds, pinks, yellows, oranges, and purples. Note that the views can sometimes be obscured by clouds and rain, particularly in the rainy season (November- March).

Wildcard

Magical Mountain If you've made your way up to Belvedere and want to experience more of Moorea's lush mountain areas, consider also visiting Magical Mountain. It's not as easy to summit as Belvedere (you'll need an ATV or a car with 4-wheel-drive) and is best accessed as part of a tour rather than independently.
