Railay Beach, Railay Beach

4.1
Take a dip into the calm waters at Railay Beach, an isolated strip of sand accessible only by boat. The beach especially attracts rock climbers eager to tackle the limestone cliffs that frame it, with some 700 climbing trails in the surrounding area. Whether or not you scramble up the cliff face you'll enjoy the spot's relaxed atmosphere, clean sand, and clear waters. Onsite restaurants and other amenities cater to a wide range of tastes. The impressive cliffs of the coast provide excellent photo opportunities, and the isolated nature of the beach means you get unimpeded shots of some of Thailand's best coastal landscape. Plan your visit to Railay Beach and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Krabi Town trip itinerary planner .

  • Railay Beach is beautiful. We chose to take a water taxi from Ao Nang beach for about £200b (£5) each return and it takes about 15 minutes to get there. The sea can get choppy off-season, so they may ...  more »
  • We came here last year but decided to go back this year Railay beach is fantastic and a short walk from the beach is all the bars shops .with three beaches quite a lot to offer.  more »
  • Sand filled with sacks,long boat everywhere and if you walk a little the mangrove area behind there is a lot of rubbish. The landscape shattered by the hand of man once again.... a pity !! The only pretty thing its rocks and the path that will pranang Bech

  • It is a paradise. There are a lot to have a fun. Infinity delicious food, fresh juice and friendly people. During the night there is a dance club on the Beach till late.... It is definitely one of my favourites places to visit until now. Highly recommended👍
  • It’s gorgeous, there are lots of people arriving and leaving but there is enough place for everybody to enjoy. Keep in mind that there is not a lot of shade, so if you plan to spend the day here bring an umbrella. There is also a little street where you can get food and refreshments
  • Nice beach .. although super crowded and the long tail boats crowd the view .. but still very beautiful. The views of rock formations are awesome!
  • Very beautiful beach. Always tourist are coming and going. Not too crowded, it could be great for couple. Just 5 minutes boat drive from AoNang beach. Few nice hotels are there.
  • Nice place ,but the beach and air is not clean due to the boat You can go in and out easily by long tale boat from the aonang beach even after sunset. (Do not use local pier , cause they have only one boat every hour)
