If you are in Knokke and you are not going to the beach or shopping and you are looking for a nice peace of nature, the zwin is a good alternative. They tried to reintroduce animals in that area, which makes it a nice place for children as well. It's bicycle- and jogging friendly area.

If you want to be near the sea and enjoy the nature do not miss this nature park. The reserve for coastal animals can be discovered by foot or by bike and is magnificent

I visited Het Zwin at countless occasions. As living in Knokke it is at our doorstep. It is rare to find such a nice piece of nature so close to human habitation. It is a perfect place to watch birds. But it is also a great place to walk and come to rest. In summertime it can be rather crowded.

... will never mean a piece of land never touched by humans - you won't have a thing like that in this part of the world. But the authorities did an excellent in re-creating woodlands, meadows and a dune landscape where you had a military airport a few decades ago. The very heart of Het Zwin close to the Dutch... More

We've been here a few times, and if you're there for a coffee, i advise the house coffee (coffee t zwin) as it's really good value for it's price. We've had a light menu here and it was all very tasty - don't expect haute cuisine and you can have a really nice small lunch here.

The parc itself is not that great, but you get to visit the creek and the beach giving an unique oportunity to see some wading birds such as the avocet, godwit, storks and herons.

I went to Het Zwin last weekend (16 August 2013) but it is still closed and under renovation. It used to be a nice place but indeed needed some renovation. Unfortunately it is still closed. However, the neighbourhood is lovely for biking so that's what we did with the whole family.
