Railay Beach Viewpoint, Railay Beach

#8 of 170 in Things to do in Krabi Town
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.

    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.
