If you get a chance to go to Belvedere Lookout please go!! You will get some beautiful pictures of the island. We did an ATV tour here and it was worth it. You're basically in a volcano.

What an awesome view! Just what you expect and great views of both the bays and Rotui Mountain. Very spectacular scenery. Worth the visit - if you are going on a tour this will probably be included.

Belvedere Lookout, overlooking Cook and Opunohu Bays provides quite stunning scenery of the bays and surrounding area. Interesting fact - it was Opunohu Bay that Captain Cook sailed into however since this bay already had a name the named the neighbouring bay after Cook

Don't forget to bring some mosquito/ insect repellent! Right as you enter the hiking trail, a man with coconut cart will try to sell you some, reasonable price and it was perfect before the hike. Coconut juice is good to replenish your energy. You can...More

In my opinion i would say it's to far to walk. In fact it would be a very expensive taxi ride. I would call them and ask about a shuttle.
