To get a good idea of the area you can walk the Sentier de la Converserie.[6] The name is derived from the Converserie, a building on the site of a former leper colony. It encompasses Le Chemin des Juifs[7] and passes Aréna and the Château d’Hardelot (now the Centre Franco-brittanique de l'Entente Cordiale[8]) as well as the local cemetery (which contains de CWGC cemetery).
