pub - bar - restaurant - hotel

The Coolangatta Sands Hotel (recently refurbished), affectionately known as “The Sands” by locals, is located in the heart of Coolangatta, a hundred metres or so from the nearest surf beach.

The Sands is comprised of a public bar, restaurant and outdoor alley bar. The public bar features a pool table, a large widescreen TV tuned to all the latest sporting events, and a state-of-the-art TAB facility for those who like a bit of a thrill.

The restaurant and bar (known as the “Kirrabelle Kitchen”) serves up fresh and delicious meals—from tempting entrées, satisfying main courses, share plates and pizzas, to tasty fare your children won’t be able to resist—as well as free live entertainment every weekend. Free wifi is available throughout.

Recently, The Alley Bar, an outdoor bar opened to cater for live music, a bit of sun and a few bevvies with friends.

We also have our own bottle shop that offers a wide variety of wine, beer and spirits at great prices. Upstairs, the Coolangatta Sands Backpacker Hostel offers clean, safe, modern and affordable accommodation with a range of useful facilities.
