This beach is approximately 800 metres across, facing south across Milford Haven Waterway and lies in front of low sandstone cliffs to the south west of Herbrandston.

A small caravan site is also located on the cliffs above the beach. Sandy Haven Pill, which is the dominant freshwater influence to the bathing water, drains land to the north and finally flows into the tranquil Sandy Haven Estuary. The bathing water lies within the Pembrokeshire Marine Special Area of Conservation and the surrounding coast forms part of the Milford Haven Waterway Site of Special Scientific Interest. The bathing water is also located within Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, further highlighting the environmental value of the area.

Sandy Haven Beach is adjacent to the Pembrokeshire Coast Path and the Wales Coast Path.
