Besaid Village
"Now, that looks like a fine place to live."

Besaid is a location from Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X-2. It is a small island at the southernmost point of the world of Spira. Tidus washes ashore on the beach following his second encounter with Sin and it is here that his story begins. The island features a large beach and seaport, a small village surrounded by forests and waterfalls, and Besaid Temple. It is the childhood home of Yuna, Wakka, Lulu and Chappu.

In the English localization, Besaid is pronounced [biˈseɪd].

Final Fantasy X

The only populated area on Besaid Island, the village is a small settlement which is famous for the fabrics and clothes it produces. Once long ago, it was a Machina City that was destroyed by Sin; the ruins of this city can be seen throughout the island. When Braska visited Besaid on his pilgrimage to defeat Sin, he thought the island would be a great place to raise a family and asked Auron to bring his daughter Yuna there after Sin was calmed. Although Auron could not fulfill this promise himself, he entrusted the task to Kimahri Ronso, who found Yuna in Bevelle and brought her to the island where she grew up with Wakka, Lulu, and Chappu.

Besaid is the home base of the Aurochs, one of the six Blitzball teams of Spira. The Crusaders also have a presence in the village; it is they who are charged with guarding the Temple.

Once the party has gained control of the Airship, should they decide to revisit the village, Dark Valefor will be summoned at the entrance and will attack. This is available only in the International and PAL versions.

The group can also come back to get Valefor's new overdrive Energy Blast.

Final Fantasy X-2

The village has remained much the same as it was seen during the time of Sin. It is still a peaceful place and for the most part has resisted the influence of New Yevon and the Youth League. Wakka and Lulu still reside here, now married and expecting their first child. Yuna is apprehensive about returning to the village as she ran off with little notice to join the Gullwings a few months before the start of the game.

Besaid Temple

Besaid Temple

The Temple of Yevon in Besaid is where the Aeon Valefor is obtained from the temple's Fayth, a young girl. It is here where Yuna completes her studies and becomes a summoner.

When Shuyin took Vegnagun deep into the Farplane, fiends began pouring out of the temple. Without knowing what the cause was, Beclem decided to burn it down. However, at the pleas of Yuna, who wished to keep her memories intact, he changed his mind, giving them a chance to discover the cause. After Valefor - controlled by Shuyin - was destroyed, he agreed to leave the temple alone.

Temple Aeon

Temple Trials

A series of puzzles involving activating Glyphs, pushing pedestals and replacing spheres. The Destruction Sphere of Besaid is required in order to get Anima of Baaj Temple.

Musical Themes

"Besaid Island"
Trouble with the audio sample?

The music that plays on Besaid Island is called Besaid Island. The piece was one of sixteen tracks selected from the original soundtrack to be re-arranged by Masashi Hamazu in the Piano Collections: Final Fantasy X album.
