Dennery's major attraction is the weekly Saturday night “Fish Fiesta” which allows visitors and locals to mingle during a beachside party. Outside of this and heading out to simply explore the landscape on your own, there aren't many specific sites to see in town. Many tourists prefer it this way, but for those who like to map out every moment of their getaway, the nearby town of Castries offers a wealth of important attractions to see as you make Dennery your home base.
There are a large number of beaches to choose from, although all of them are found in neighboring areas. Snorkeling is available at several locations, for people who enjoy the underwater scene. Just click on the name of each beach for more detail concerning that particular location.
Anse Louvert: This beach may or may not be accessible by car, as sometimes the roads are impassible. Talk to locals to find out the situation.
Another option worth considering is Grand Anse. The beach is located east of Babonneau, and can be accessed using roads from the town of Marquis. Once there, you'll want to take the small roads east, but ask the locals which ones are best, as this sometimes changes.
Marigot Bay: Marigot Bay is the perfect Caribbean locale, complete with mountain backdrop and cove. This might explain why it attracts visitors from all over the world.
These are just a few of what you can find. To learn more about beaches available, click here.
A common landmark for vacationers is Fort Charlotte. It is located 8.7 mi. Northwest of central Dennery. The large Fort Charlotte may be in ruins, but there is still plenty to explore.

Another interesting landmark worth visiting is Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception. It is located within downtown Castries, 9.3 mi. Northwest of central Dennery.
