Resort Description

The Melia Nassau Beach All Inclusive is an elegant property located on stunning Cable Beach, minutes from the region's shops, bars and nightlife and with easy access to the international airport.

This is a fully-featured resort, whether you're looking for relaxation and romance or shows and live music. Seven on-site restaurants - such as steakhouse The Black Angus and mexican-themed Cilantro - offer striking cuisine that suits everyone's tastes, with four on-site bars handling the drinks.

The resort is a good choice for families: kids of all ages are welcomed in a safe and separate environment, with a kids' pool and Kids Club supervised by qualified personnel. Rooms are well-appointed, clean and comfortable and offer views of the Atlantic Ocean, the on-site pools or the resort's gardens.

Diving is diverse and good all-year round, ranging from reefs and drifts to a spectacular array of wrecks, including planes. The area is also particularly well-known for access to dive locations that were used as underwater movie sets for feature films.

Best dive sites in Nassau (New Providence)

The walls and reefs on the southwest side of the island can be explored by Open Water and Advanced divers. Popular sites are Goulding Cay Wall and Schoolhouse Reef. Shark Arena is a shallow dive with plenty of Caribbean reef sharks. If you’d like to try wreck diving at New Providence, look for the Cessna Wreck, as well as the Sea Viking Wreck. Shallower wrecks include the James Bond Wrecks and The Willaurie Wreck. Tec divers will also enjoy exploring Lost Blue Hole, and Trinity Caves is a favorite of many daredevils.

Snorkeling in Nassau (New Providence)

With clear and colorful waters, snorkeling around New Providence and Nassau is easy on the eyes. You’re sure to find plenty of dive operators willing to take you out on a day-long excursion. A few of the best destinations for such trips are Goulding Cay, Gambier Deep Reef and Rose Island Reef. While not as colorful, it’s also possible to rent snorkel gear and create your own snorkeling trip from several of the island’s beaches.

What to see

An endless array of marine life make their home in these waters. There are small creatures like the Bahama sea star, blue tang, snapper, sea bass, squid, spiny lobster, queen conch, angelfish flounder, butterfly fish and octopus. Schools of silversides prefer the cover of Nassau’s many wrecks. Nassau grouper and sea turtles swim among the healthy coral reefs, and stingrays camouflage themselves on the sandy bottom. There are also huge animals, including an impressive array of sharks. Caribbean reef sharks and silky sharks are common visitors. The occasional tiger shark wanders by. Keep a lookout for dolphins, as well, frolicking just offshore.
