Belvedere Lookout of Moorea
Moorea

Less than 30 minutes' drive away from my "pension" is the higest accessible point by car on the rugged island of Moorea - Belvedere. 

Had the undergrowth been trimmed it would have been possible to see both bays of Opunohu and Cook together.

More About Moorea

Moorea is a high island in French Polynesia, part of the Society Islands, 17 km (roughly 9mi) northwest of Tahiti. Moorea means "yellow lizard" in Tahitian. An older name for the island is Aimeho, sometimes spelled Aimeo or Eimeo (among other spellings misunderstood by early visitors with no knowledge of the language). Early Western colonists and voyagers also referred to Moorea as York Island.
