Now one of the most frequented water sports centres in the district, Dale was once a prosperous port trading far afield - even at one time exporting ale to Liverpool.

Historically, Dale can claim fame as the spot where in 1485 Henry Tudor landed on his return from exile in France, en route to his defeat of Richard lll at Bosworth Field.

Dale has two beaches - the one in the village faces on to the waters of Milford Haven, ideally sheltered for dinghy sailing or windsurfing (lessons available locally). The other beach at West Dale faces out to sea and Skokholm island. This beach is cleaner and sandier but is not ideal for bathing due to currents. In summer, it can be a sun-trap but the walk up the steep steps from the beach make it unsuitable for the elderly or infirm.

Those interested in second world war history may not realise how many war-time airfields lie in this part of Pembrokeshire. As you drive round the one-way system in the village you eventually come to Dale Castle (private) but turning left to go round the back of the castle takes you up on to the old Dale airfield. At present, the perimeter track and main runways are still there and they provide easy access to the cliffs at the top of Marloes Sands. From here you can see Gateholm, Skokholm and Skomer islands and in the distance, on a clear day, the white-topped island of Grassholm, home to a huge gannet colony (no prizes for guessing what the white top is made of!).
