The Fangu watershed is today a vast area of unspoilt nature, designated as "Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO". Its gorges dug into the rhyolite and its natural bathing areas make this place a popular spot for holidaymakers.
Access by car (about 40 minutes)
From Calvi direction Ile-Rousse-Bastia, go toward Aéroport Calvi-Ste Catherine and continue straight until the junction on the right towards Galeria. Continue to the Pont des 5 Arcate and turn left after the bridge. You will find delimited car parks indicated by signs along the road (some are paid). The river flows downhill all along the road and access points are well indicated. The hike is not difficult but please avoid flip flops!
The Fango Valley is a very wooded natural area and the road is very narrow. Respect parking areas to allow sufficient passage for emergency and fire prevention vehicles.
