"One bin visit it from March to October." Why is this an acceptable answer? Is this English?

For the life of me I can't figure out how come "it is possible to visit" could ever be translated as "il se visite"

incorrect translation given here.

No, it is correct, except that they aren't accepting "it can be visited..."

how is this it "can" be visited as opposed to "he visits himself", does the verb pouvoir come into it? thanks

It's one of those common French expressions that doesn't translate word for word into English, but if you'll do a Google search for "Il se visite de ..." you'll get a lot of results leading you to museums and tourist attractions where the phrase is used, which on a similar website in English would read: it can be seen, it can be visited, you can visit it, one can visit it, etc.
