Seafood and garden cuisine
Located on the Levantine Costa del Azahar, the gastronomic offer of the Parador de Benicarló includes fish and seafood caught in the Mediterranean as well as produce from the market garden, with the excellent local artichoke at the forefront - which has a Designation of Origin - the basis of succulent dishes typical of the area, such as rice dishes and fideuás (short noodles).
A cult of seafood and artichokes
With views of the gardens, the sea and the castle of Peñíscola, the decoration and brightness of the dining hall evoke the Mediterranean. During the summer you can dine on the terrace watching the moon reflecting on the water. On the menu, delicious fish and vegetable rice dishes, black squid, fish and seafood, cheeses and meats from the Maestrazgo region... Don't miss the octopus and fish market days in autumn and the artichoke days in winter.

An oasis with a Mediterranean character
Benicarló is a modern maritime city, washed by a blue sea and it enjoys a wonderful climate. Its three beaches, Morrongo, La Caracola and La Mar Xica, are ideal spots for swimming. But there’s also culture. You can visit the Baroque church of San Bartolomé and the City Cultural Museum in Benicarló. And its surroundings are home to the Iberian settlements of Puig de la Nao and Tossa.
Not only does the Parador offer you a peaceful haven where you wake up and have breakfast overlooking the sea, enjoy the well-tended garden, and walk on until your toes touch the sand; but it’s also a dynamic city where you can go out for a drink on summer nights or practice active tourism in the Benicarló-Peñíscola Nautical Resort.
