Road access
The road-trip from Calvi to Algajola takes 22 minutes for 17.6 kilometres. You must take the T 30 road in the direction of Ile-Rousse for about sixteen kilometres. Then you must take the small road that will allow you to reach the village of Algajola.

Description
A seaside resort par excellence, Algajola will allow you to discover the villages of the Aregno plain and the hinterland of the Balagne region. Furthermore, you should know that this village is rich in history: in the 16th and 17th centuries, Algajola was the administrative capital of the Balagne region. A courthouse, which had jurisdiction over the neighbouring parishes, was founded here. This walk (red and yellow markers) is perfect for families and will allow you to discover the flora and fauna of the region.
After having parked your car, you must take the main road of the village and go down until you reach the national road which you must cross. Follow the road until the roundabout and then take the road D 551 towards Aregno – an old agricultural village situated in the heart of what used to be called the garden of Corsica. After about five hundred metres you must take the path on your left.
This path takes you to the Teghjella stream, which you must cross. The path climbs gently until you reach a crossroads. Take the shady path which starts on your left and continue walking until you reach a wide path that gently descends. Cross a stream and continue walking towards the Balanea camping. Then you must take the path to the right of the camping and walk until you reach a small stream that you must cross. This stream is not far from the main road that will allow you to return to your starting point.
