Railay Beach Viewpoint, Railay Beach

4.6
Admiring sweeping views from Railay Beach Viewpoint: located on high cliffs overlooking the beach, the point provides superb perspectives and photo opportunities of the surrounding dramatic coast, sea, and palm trees below. Steep and narrow pathways make access to the viewpoint difficult to navigate. Ropes extend over parts of the route to assist the climb, but appropriate footwear is still a must. Even with proper hiking boots, however, don't attempt the ascent after a heavy rainfall because the path becomes extremely slippery.

  • Well worth spending odyssey that should be fun to have one of the most impressive views that I've taken of my trip in Thailand. You have to go catching you with ropes and others, so I advise to go in sneakers or flip-flops seized, no flip flops (fliflops) because it is hard to access. Enter the mountain and reach this viewpoint is certainly one of the things I recommend 100% if you are in Railey Beach or Tonsai Beach as it was our case.

  • We saw it from both sides. Besides the view being perfect, the trekking over there is really worth it. And the bat cave on the way is just a plus!  more »

  • Good viewpoint if its a nice day, would recommend taking shoes up with you otherwise it can get quite sharp and slippery. Depending on how busy it is, can vary from around 10 minutes to 35 minutes to get up here.
  • Really nice view that is worth the climb, but I recommend having shoes on. It only takes about 15 minutes going up, and maybe an hour in total if you want to go to the lagoon as well
  • Nice Hotel getting old nice beaches though public and crowded. To expensive overrated
  • What a holiday destination. Wow!
  • You need to climb to see this aweseome view. Cant miss this one if you're around.
