Platydoris sabulosa is large (10 cm and more) and flat with a wide mantle and relatively narrow body. The rhinophore pockets are slightly raised, and edge of the gill pocket is raised and lobed. The dorsum has a translucent white background colour but it is covered by many light greyish brown patches and a few darker reddish brown patches, especially around the edge. The gills and rhinophores also have mottled brown markings.
