This is an extremely difficult hike. A guide is suggested. The 2nd half of the hike consists of ropes and hiking along steep drop offs. Do not attempt this trail during or after rain.Show more

Start in Opunohu Valley along a road that turns off the main road at the end of Opunohu Bay that leads to Belvedere lookout. Follow a dirt road for a ways, then head on to the trail, which is blazed some of the way. It is a very steep climb and can be hot and humid. After a bit, you come to Col des Trois Cocotiers, with fabulous views over the valley, the two bays, Mount Rotui, Tohiea, and many other peaks surrounding the Caldeira. The caldeira is what's left of the crater of the volcano that formed Moorea about 1.5 million years ago. Moorea and Tahiti are young islands, compared to Bora Bora, which is closer to 60 million years old. Continue on to Belvedere Lookout with views of Mount Rotui and other mountains to the south and of Opunohu and Cook's Bays. Continue on to Sommet des Trois Pinus, another lookout with wonderful views. Finish your hike through a pineapple plantation and back to the starting spot.Show more

Walk up the road towards the Lycee Agricole and to the Marae(s) shortly thereafter. From there, use a small path ("Anciene") up to Belvedere. The hike from there to 3 Cocotiers is quite easy and well maintained. On the way back, take the western track around the caldera.Show more
