Head up Magic Mountain for extensive views of the coastline, towns, and coral reefs of Moorea. Take an ATV tour up the mountain or hike to its peak for panoramic views of the surrounding scenery--you may even spot a whale breeching close to the shoreline. The lush vegetation covering its slopes extends into the valley, providing superb photographic opportunities, with rich greens and light blues dominating the landscape. Enjoy a picnic while watching boats come in and out of the harbor, or simply soak up the relaxing way of life on the island, seen from above.

  • Great overlook of the bay and lagoon. The view is amazing. However I caution you about the hike up the mountain. It is paved but very steep. This is not an easy hike and should be considered.

  • Short, very steep hike to the top but so worth it! The view was simply stunning...360 degree views. We did the ATV tour to get here so only had to hike the final trail to top. Not sure how long...
