Dale is situated on the north side of the Milford Haven at the end of the B4327. Being east facing and sheltered it is a popular venue for watersports particularly windsurfing, sailing and water skiing, and is home to a water sports centre.
The beach is made up of sand and stones, and the sea is cluttered with assorted buoys. Dog restrictions apply on the northern section of the beach up as far as the rocks, from May to September inclusive. Parking is at a small, landscaped P&D car park. Westdale Bay, on the other side of the peninsula, is a short walk away and a better choice for a day at the beach.
Dale has good facilities including toilets, a slipway, a cafe with outdoor seating, a pub, a post office/stores and a restaurant. The village also has a tediously long one-way system.
