The Coolangatta Sands Hotel, affectionately known as “The Sands” by locals, is located in the heart of Coolangatta, a hundred metres or so from the nearest surf beach. Since 1911, this beautiful old pub has undergone many transitions—the most significant in December 2016, transforming it into a modern dining facility, lounge and sports bar.  

The Sands is comprised of a public bar and the newly renovated restaurant and lounge bar, the Kirrabelle Kitchen. The Kirrabelle Kitchen is a contemporary and elegant dining facility that offers a variety of gourmet food and drinks set in a in a colourful and retro themed atmosphere. Serving 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.

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.
