Torre d'en Beu is a beautifully situated sea cliff not dissimilar to the nearby and long established Tijuana. There are fewer routes here but there is certainly potential for more. If you have run out of grade 6s at Tijuana, hop in the car and head over for a look at what is on offer. The orange-stained rock rises above a large boulder-strewn platform, and is of excellent quality on the routes covered. There is also quite a bit of bouldering on the various boulders hereabouts, but a mat is advisable.
On entering Santanyí village, follow signs for 'Cala Figuera' and 'Cala Santanyí' through the village. From the outskirts of Santanyí continue for around 2km to a roundabout. Turn left here (signed 's'Amarador' - Tijuana is straight on at this roundabout). Keep right, then at the next junction turn left, then right at the one after (no real signs on this section). At a bend drive straight on down a rough dirt track to the parking by the tower at the end. To reach the crag, head left (looking out) down a short path to the platform below the crag.
|Suggest you ignore the advice in the Rockfax guide and leave your car at the road, it’s 200m to walk down the track to the tower and save yourself the scratches down the side of your hire car from the overhanging bushes along the narrow track, I wish we had.....|
