Sint Anna ter Muiden is a town about 1 km west of Sluis, in the municipality of Sluis. It is located on the westernmost point of the Netherlands, in the province of Zeeland. It has a population of 50 (as of 2001).

Sint Anna ter Muiden was granted city rights in 1242 by the counts of Flanders, Thomas II of Savoy and Jeanne of Flanders. This makes it today the second smallest place in the Netherlands that bears this traditional designation (after Staverden with just 40 inhabitants).

Sint Anna ter Muiden was a separate municipality until 1880, when it was merged with Sluis.[1] Prior to 1 January 2003, it was in the former municipality of Sluis-Aardenburg.
