Dale is situated on the South Western tip of Pembrokeshire, mid way along the National Park Coastal path. It is a popular stop off point for walkers and the waters around the Dale Peninsula attract those interested in marine mammals and birds, sailing, surfing, diving and angling. It has all the trappings that you may expect of a seaside village such as a public car park next to the beach, post office/store, pub, café, waters ports centre, bed and breakfast accommodation and yacht club. However, tucked away as it is from the major tourist hot spots in Pembrokeshire, it is still a quiet and relaxed destination.
There is a public slipway for launching boats and a floating pontoon for passenger transfers and short term mooring, as well as being very popular for kids crabbing. Dale is the closest village departure point for trips to Skomer, Skokholm and Grassholm. There is an abundance of bird and marine life with Skomer Island and the surrounding Marine Reserve proving an attractive destination. There are several wonderful beaches in the locality, such as West Dale, Marloes Sands, Musslewick and Watwick.
Dale is situated near the mouth of the Cleddau Estuary and entrance to the port of Milford Haven. Officially founded in 1790, today it is the third largest port in the UK, potentially handling up to 30% of gas and 25% of its petrochemical requirements. The port of Milford Haven has many important historical links and several landmarks still exist to the present day. www.digitaldan.co.uk/milf/history.php. Beyond Milford are the tranquil and picturesque upper reaches of the Cleddau with several hostelries accessible from the river.
