We have been to Moorea quite a few times and we always make time to drive the rental car to Belvedere. It is one of the most beautiful views anywhere in the world. It is also great to visit on a cloudy/ light rain day as the clouds will cover the top of the mountain but you can generally still... More

Definitely worth the ride. Amazing views of the mountains and ocean. Easy ride up in a car, we did not hike although some say it's a nice hike.

We took our rental car and followed the signs up to the Belvedere, several times. It is a beautiful spot to look out at the twin bays and lagoon. Lots of people visit the spot, but it is iconic and possibly the best place for selfies on Moorea!

Fantastic views and a great day out visiting many places in Moorea. We done the 4x4 with Alberts transport and our guide Dave done a fantastic job. Highly recommend visiting while in Moorea. Many people on the ATV's and looked a lot of fun!

We visited the Belvedere Lookout as part of our ATV tour with Louie. We had a great time taking pictures of the bays and the views were amazing.

I first got to Belvedere Lookout by car, the next time I went by foot. The view is espetacular and there are amazing hikes you can take from there too. I recommend to have a guide tough.

Went there twice, once by car, once on foot. It's not a big distance to walk (went there running in 40 min, some friends walked there in an hour). There are places to stop by on the way (Agriculture high school, historical sites, and signs with maps that show the itineraries for hikes). If you walk you go on the... More

We rented a dune buggy and drove it to the belvedere. Although it was a rainy day, the view was still spectacular. Definitely worth the trip!

We rented a car and did a trip around island as well as this lookout spot. This was a great scenic spot. I would come here again but next time I wouldn't waste my time driving around the whole island. I'd just come right here great scenic spot.

A must do when in Moorea! Beautiful views of both bays, as well as a great glimpse into the culture and heritage of the island. Beautiful to learn of how the locals are fighting to keep their mountains wild and free from development for generations to come.
