French Polynesia Things to Do: 79 reviews and 75 photos
The Belvedere is almost in the middle of the island. It is quite elevated and the road up is pretty steep. We saw some very tired and overheated looking cyclists attempting to get up the road as we drove past them in our air-conditioned car ;-)
The Lookout Point (Le Belvedere) looks down onto Mount Rotui (seen in this photo between the two coves) and Cook's Bay on the right of it, and Opunohu Bay on its left. There is some debate as to whether Captain Cook actually landed in Cook's Bay, but he certainly was in the area.
Directions: Take the road up from Opunohu Bay up into the hills. It is signposted for Le Belvedere. There is another road from Cooks Bay, but this road is very windy, and although it looks shorter, it takes much longer.
