Reviewed 1 May 2014

It,s 4km up the road and we did it by bicycles. Coming down was much easier and faster too.
From Beldevere you can see the both great bays at the same time. And not just that the mountains around and above you are fantastic. By the road we picked a lot of passion fruits. And if you like to go trekking, there is another view point but not for drivers to upright from Beldevere. Take enough water with you especially if not by car. Some archeological sites are also by the road.

“Spectacular View!”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

We took an ATV tour up to Belvedere Lookout. That was a lot of fun, and the views all the way up were amazing. You'll be able to see both Cook's and Opunohu Bays from the lookout, and you'll get to take some beautiful pictures. The mountain that lies between the bays looks like it's straight out of a fairytale!

“Underwhelmed.”
Reviewed 21 March 2014

Not sure if my problem is with the lookout (which is fine, not great) or with the ATV tour that took me there (which wan't great). Don't get me wrong, the view is good. You can spot both bays. And avocado trees, which I had never seen before (so I thought that was cool). But come on, this isn't the grand canyon...you're visiting an island for the beach, not the mountain.

“Panoramic view”
Reviewed 7 March 2014

Unfortunately you do need a good sunny day to go here. The view is amazing, can see both bays. If there is a cruise ship in its exiting to see it from here. On the way there are interesting places to stop. The agricultural college is one - make the most divine jams.

“What a View!”
Reviewed 1 March 2014

While you're in Moorea, don't miss visiting Belvedere Lookout for a magnificent view of Cook's Bay and Opunohu. Along the way, you'll pass charming homes and get a glimpse into the lives of the Islanders. At the top, on a clear day, you can almost see forever. We used Albert's Tours (air conditioned bus) and were not disappointed.
