It is situated on the east coast of Harris, 8 km east of Tarbert, at the western side of the entrance to Loch Seaforth. Rèinigeadal is situated within the parish of Harris. Rèinigeadal had no road access until 1990; the only route in was 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) along a hill path, or by boat. The road now links to the A859.
Rèinigeadal has a youth hostel, run by the Gatliff Hebridean Hostels Trust. This opened in 1962, and was the first Gatliff hostel.
The hamlet does not have any shops, restaurants or public houses. The National Grid only started providing islanders with electricity in 1980. and the hostel only started using electricity in June 1990.
Rèinigeadal boasted Britain's last single-digit telephone number (Rhenigidale 1) until converted in March 1990.
