Yanliau ( Hualien Visitor Center)
Located at the northern entrance of the ECNSA, the Hualien Visitor Center provides an excellent view of the Pacific Ocean. Exhibition rooms at the center feature displays introducing the local ecology, native cultures, and tourist attractions. There is also a multimedia conference room large enough for 84 persons, and a variety of unique lily species can be enjoyed the nearby pond, especially in during the blossom season from April to May.
North of the service center, is Lingding Cape, the northernmost end of the Coastal Range. Here you can enjoy the waves stirred up by the confluence of the Hualien River and the Pacific.
