Coolangatta Sands Hostel
The Coolangatta Sands Hostel is brilliantly located in the heart of Coolangatta, the very first stop on the Gold Coast once you cross the border into Queensland from New South Wales… Just up from Byron bay.
Coolangatta is home to Mick Fanning and Stephanie Gilmore the worlds surfing champions and their favourite surfing breaks like Snapper Rocks and D-Bah which can be found directly across the road.
We are the closest hostel on the Gold Coast to the beach. Our hostel boasts modern new facilities and downstairs you will find The Sands lounge bar, Kirrabelle Brasserie and sports bar. It is a perfect hostel for anyone keen to chill out, surf, take on the beautiful beaches of the Gold Coast or explore the local hinterland rain forest.
For those a bit more adventurous we highly recommend the Coolangatta Adventure Crew for all your activities. Diving and fishing around the Cook Island Marine Park, surfing lessons from the world's best surf coach or taking the plunge with the local Gold Coast Skydive; one of the few places in Australia you are allowed to land on the beach!
Some of the local attractions include:
100 meters from the World's famous surf breaks; Superbanks, Kirra Point and D-Bah
Dive at the beautiful Cook Island Marine Park
Whale Watching from June to October
10 min from Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary and our new wildlife volunteer program
40 min drive to Mt Warning, Springbrook and Lamington National Parks
30 min drive from the Gold Coast theme parks, Movieworld, Dreamworld, Seaworld and Wet`n`Wild.
As well as being just five minutes away from the Gold Coast airport, Coolangatta Sands Hostel is a beach lover's dream.
