With such spectacular landscape in Moorea it just makes you want to hike and explore the inside of the island and discover the valleys, mountains and incredible view points.
We drove up Opunohu bay valley to the Belvedere lookout and hiked up E’a Tefeo – the three coconuts trail.
It was a great walk with a splendid path the whole way and wonderful viewpoints. We managed to eat coconuts and passion fruit which were growing along the trail too. The trees and flowers varied so much and we even went through a giant bamboo forest.
The valley is full of marae and we stopped to look at a couple of the ancient sites.
Great to stretch the legs for a good four hour hike and then to find out there are nine more hikes to do from the same starting point!
