The Sands

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.

    It's a good place to have a feed and a quite drink and watch TV. It's definitely not what it was in the 1970s and 80s alot quieter now. The 70s / 80s were rather wild times at the timo. Bands playing and punches flying from time … More to time. Yee haa !! The Hill Billy day's.
