Algajola (ou Algaghjola) fut longtemps une position Génoise avancée devant Calvi. Les 1ers habitats correspondent aux sites préhistoriques et protohistoriques de Tepina-Cocani et au site du mont Saint Joseph.

Le site est très pittoresque mais il faut mouiller à distance et sans guère de protection.
