Function venue, restaurant & pub

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.

The Sands
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.
