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.

    Could not be more impressed! We work up the road and walk down every Thursday for steak day. The chefs here are absolutely amazing and accommodating. The staff are great too, always with a smile and a warm welcome.
