Little Haven is situated in a steep sided valley on Pembrokeshire's west coast. Access to the beach is down a slipway and facilities include a shop selling ice-creams, three pubs (all serving food at reasonable prices), toilets and a P&D car park which has a few free short stay spaces.
The beach is sand with rock-pools and flanked by cliffs of shale and sandstone. Dogs are allowed at all times.
On low tides it is possible to walk north along the shore to Settlands beach and Broad Haven. Settlands is a wide sandy beach backed by high cliffs and is only accessible along the shore. On the south side of Little Haven, a wide path leads to the Lookout and two small, adjoining coves known as the Sheep Wash and Rook's Bay. These are mostly rocky with some low-tide sand.
Little Haven is popular with surfers and divers, and swimming is generally safe.
