This tour location is approximately 40 minutes from the Channel Terminals and starts at Hardelot Chateau, close to the villages of Condette and Hardelot sur Plage. To start the walk, go to Hardelot Chateau, via the village of Condette (follow sign-posts) and park at the car park (where there is provision for cars, vans and coaches and a café and facilities on site). From the car park entrance, when leaving the castle with the café on the left, turn left on to a dead-end small road (Rue de la Source) with some residential houses and proceed 290m, when on the right there is a track and then an entry (with information board and route indicator) on to the Chemin des Juifs, via a wooden chicane into the Foret Domaniale d'Ecault. Follow the concrete road through the forest and sand dunes until the Jewish memorial is reached after 1.4 km, the first stop on the tour. Later on the road, remember to take the right fork as the road climbs the dunes, to reach the end of the Jew's Road. the left fork goes to the beach section of the tour (optional. The total walk, if the beach is included is just over four miles, though shorter options can be taken.
