Benicàssim first became a tourist destination over a hundred years ago. Its fine sand, gently sloping beaches, clean waters and numerous facilities continue to shape a resort chosen by thousands of people. The Benicàssim district has much more besides. With the backdrop of the "Desert de les Palmes" natural park, there are an endless number of places worth visiting. Culture and leisure, activity and rest are simultaneous possibilities. Over the last few years Benicàssim has acquired prominence on the musical scene with the celebration of an international music festival (FIB), which brings together thousands of young people of all nationalities.
