Must do in Moorea! Amazing view and well worth a visit.
Experience unforgettable views of Opunohu Bay, Rotui Hill and the north side of Moorea Island. The view of Magic Mountain is known for two things, namely, the accessible, beautiful view and for renaming the hill of the Town of Papetoai to Magic Mountain.
A relatively steep path leads to the view, which you can climb up by walk or by quad. The journey takes about 30 minutes and is slightly challenging for its steeper ascent, but on the other hand nothing that could not be managed. At the top there is a beautiful view of the turquoise lagoon and the mighty mountain Rotui, which is a beautiful reward for your ascent.
To better remember, they named the mountain of the village of Papetoai to Magic Mountain.
