Located in the heart of town and only metres from the Cooly coastline rests the historic Coolangatta Sands Hotel. Affectionately known as ‘the Sands’, the renowned pub has been locally adored since 1911. We have something for everyone with many leisure spaces including bars, dining, gaming and function areas.

We offer quality accommodation for all visitors from out of town.

Has Got It All

Our newly renovated restaurant and Lounge Bar provide a relaxing space for dining and events. We also have a discrete and secluded Alley Bar available for functions such as birthdays, engagements and corporate events.

    Beautiful food, super friendly staff. After a very poor dining experience elsewhere this was a breath of fresh air.
    Quick service. Meals were more than we could eat & staff were
    happy to provide take away containers for us.
    Best family
    … More friendly prices we've come across so far with most value for money & an array of specials.
    Will definately be back!
