    As of June 2022 the place looks abandonend. What is relevant to visitors is the observation deck of the building . You can see from there the whole beach. The beach is part of the Pacific Rim Nature Reserve and the parking is for a fee (like all the sites of the reserve). Beautiful beach, highly recommended.

    This facility once had a very good exhibition. Restaurant with beach and sunset views used to be top class, high rated. Unfortunately, since management transferred to First Nations, essentially abandoned.

    The beach adjacent to the visitor center is a great place to come and relax and take in the views of the ocean. We were here for a sunset on our last visit and will never forget the awesome views. Definitely a place to discover if you're visiting florencia beach.

    A hidden gem in the Pacific Rim National Park. Located between Tofino and Ucluelet the Kwisitis Visitor Centre has amazing lookout decks and and indoor viewing area for the super rainy days. There is also a theatre and interpretive area with a variety of displays. The restaurant is open seasonally.

    We were just amazed looking at the waves on one stormy day! The visitor centre was closed but the deck is at the perfect place for watching the waves and having a cup of coffee..

    So I've read some of the reviews on here about the place looking abandoned. This is not true, they are in the middle of a Reno and should hopefully have the place open and running shortly. The views and the beachs are so beautiful, I would highly recommend to anyone thinking about checking out Florence beach to also check out Kwisitis visitor center. Oh, lastly, your in Pacific rim park so please be aware of wild life as there are bears, wolfs and all sorts of wild life.

    Stunning location on the sandy shores of Wikkaninnish Beach the visitor center is the focal point of the past present and future of west coast British Columbia. I was most impressed with the very strong focus on the Nuu-chah-nulth First Nations people who have called this place home for over 5000 years. Stunning murals, sculptures, artifacts and story boards immerse you in the education. Also the land and marine wildlife educational component of the centre is world class. When the first nations sections added in the whole place rivals any museum. The Visitor Centre guide is very knowledgable and helpful so be sure to chat with them. Lastly don't forget to enjoy the upper viewing rooms looking out across the huge waves of the shoreline and the outer decks as well.

    Even in storm season it's a beautiful place. The visitors center has a lot of great history, love this area ❤

    Nice place to come into and look around. Staff gave a great presentation on bears, wolves and cougars. Unfortunately the restaurant and gift shop are no longer open but that makes it feel more genuine and not a tourist trap. Cost for the park is around $15 for a family pass and is good throughout the park until 4pm the next day. The center is free.

👍👍 Awesome beach, very fine sand and not too crazy with the crowds for the last week of August. Outdoor wash areas you get the sand off before getting back into your car. Remember to buy your national park pass.

👍👍 Great hike 10 mins from Tofino. We took the Tofino Water taxi over and back. As someone who does not do well on boats it was a quick ride over with only 1 or 2 bumps along the way. The cedar planks are awesome but very uneven. So make sure to wear good shoes! We took our time and tried to take in...
