The small coastal resort of Sant Elm, that faces the islands of Es Pantaleu and sa Dragonera, is an excellent starting point for different walks. One of the most recommendable for all ages is the walk to the Tower of Cala en Basset via CamÝ de Can TomeuÝ.

The Tower of Cala en Basset was built in the XVI century and, together with the Tower of es Cap Andritxol and the Tower of la Mola, is part of the network of towers that was used to control the coast and to protect the town against pirate attacks.

The way to the Tower goes through a lovely pine forest with stunning views of sa Dragonera, Cala en Basset and the Morro de sa Rajada.

The path is approximately 2.5km kilometres long and the round trip can be done in 2 hours.
