Sluis is a little 'taste' of Holland. A windmill dominates the skyline, along with the Belfort tower of the church, which was used as a lookout in times past. This can be climbed in the summer months in order to see the super view over the Zwin in nearby Knokke Heist on the coast.
It is a very popular little town, especially in the summer when it is full of flowers. There is a good range of shops including alternative medicine, cheese and sex shops but NO coffee shops like in Amsterdam!.
Mussels from the North Sea feature on many menus in the restaurants and you can dine in style at Michelen starred establishments.
There is a super fresh fish market and lots of inviting cafes bordering the pretty waterfront.
Sluis exists because of the silting up of the Zwin, which (along with Damme) made it a port of Bruges. Nowadays Sluis is cut off from the sea, but thrives as a tourist destination.
