(850m, 25km from Beirut)

Excavations in Bikfaya have shown that it once was the consecrated shrine of the Phoenician Baal (god) Rachaf.  Today, Bikfaya has grown into a summer resort, and is known for its fruits (peaches and cherries), and water springs.  The town relies on its natural beauty and pleasant weather to attract visitors.

Bikfaya organizes a flower fesitval every August.
