Dale is situated on the north side of the Milford Haven at the end of the B4327. Being east facing and sheltered it has become a popular venue for watersports particularly windsurfing, sailing and water skiing, and is home to the West Wales Water Sports Centre. The beach is made up of sand and stones, and the sea is littered with assorted buoys. A dog ban operates on the northern section of the beach up as far as the rocks, from May to September inclusive. There is a P&D car park opposite the beach, with a few disabled spaces overlooking 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.
