Railay Beach Viewpoint, Railay Beach

#2 of 13 in Things to do in Railay Beach
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.

  • A short walk and hike to a small viewpoint. We had our kids age 7,10,12 with us and they managed fine. Was a bit disapointed as we thought we would go to the top of the rock.  more »
  • The effort is worth it. Something sporty so long it is very easily accessible. Should however the weather.

  • The trail that leads to the View Point and the Lagoon is very difficult! Take the path that leads to Phra Nang Beach leaving Railey East. At the beginning of the path will have something like a bus stop. Look to the left and you'll see ropes down hill. Is there the trail. It takes about 30 minutes to the View point and the greatest part is steep climb with ropes to help. To the Lagoon, it takes about 45 min because after up everything, will have q down several bids that the steepest ascent. There are bamboo ladders to help. Both are worth. Take water and go. Get ready to get dirty!

  • Really nice place. It's low season now therefore we've been there alone. Climbing can be really demanding (it's steep and slippery) after the rain
  • Fun challenging hike. Fairly quick to do 2 - 3 hour roundtrip. Make sure to also hike to the Lagoon as well.
  • The best views are at least 25m up on the Taiwan wall.
  • Very nice viwepoint. You need some climbing skills to get there.
  • Best beach in Thai
