Set in the heart of Coolangatta, one hundred metres or so from the nearest surfing beach, the Coolangatta Sands Hotel or ‘The Sands’, has been an iconic part of the coast since 1911.
After undergoing a major refurbishment in 2006, The Sands now houses a large public bar as well as a lounge bistro/bar, equipped with a pool table, large wide screen TV and a state of the art TAB facility. Serving up a range of tasty treats including entrees, shared plates and hearty main courses; be sure to come with an appetite! The Sands Bar also has a wonderful selection of wines, beer and spirits to choose from. The Coolangatta Sands Backpacker Hostel (located upstairs) also offers clean and affordable accommodation for out of town guests, together with a plethora of visitor information on local sights and services.
With specials available throughout the week, you’re sure to find a dining experience right for you. Whether it’s our everyday lunch deals from $10 or a chicken parmy on Monday for $15, there are so many options available! Also, don’t forget The Sands has great live music most weekends for your listening pleasure. Get in touch to book a table or hear about our upcoming events leading into the festive season.
