The small coastal town of Sant Elm, located in front of the islet Es Pantaleu and Sa Dragonera island is an excellent departure point to hike. One of the most recommendable for all kinds of hikers is the excursion to the Tower of Cala en Basset by the Camí de Can Tomeví.

The Tower of Cala en Basset was built on the XVI century  with the the Tower of Cap Andritxol and The Tower of La Mola, it is part of the defense towers which were used to watch the coast and protect the island from the pirates.

The excursion goes through a beautiful pine tree forest and offers excellent views of Sa Dragonera island, Cala en Basset and el Morro de sa Rajada.

The path to the tower is 2.5 Km long and it can be done, in both senses, in around 2 hours.
