Magic Mountain (Montagne Magique)

Location - Papetō’ai
Duration - Allow 1 hour
Difficulty - Easy

Head up Magic Mountain for extensive views of the coastline, towns, and coral reefs of Mo'orea. The lush vegetation covering its slopes extends into the valley, providing superb photographic opportunities, with rich greens and light blues dominating the landscape. Hike to its peak for panoramic views of the surrounding scenery. ATV tours up the mountain are also available. Choose a clear morning.  You'll find star fruit (carambola) and passion fruit along the way. The grade is steep, but attainable if you are in moderate physical condition. Offers a great view of the lagoon.  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.
