Railay Beach in Krabi

Railay Beach
Railay Beach is about ten minutes from Ao Nang by boat. The beach is a genuinely superb location with golden sand against a limestone cliff backdrop. There is a gentle atmosphere on Railay; absent are bars competing against each other with techno music. As such, the site has become a destination of choice for people trying to avoid crowds in Ao Nang and Phi-Phi. Given that’s its chief attraction, more and more people are frequenting the beach,
and it’s only a matter of time until Railay Beach becomes equally as busy!  Amongst other activities, Railay is famous for its rock climbing. Climbing courses have been available in the area for over ten years and the instructors available are some of the best in the country. The cliff tops offer tremendous views of Railay Bay and surrounding areas. They are also an ideal location to watch the beautiful sunsets the beach offers.
How to get there: It takes 30 minutes from Chao Fa pier in Krabi Town to get to Railay Beach by long tail boat. Long tails are also available from Ao Nam. Boats cost no more than 50 or 60 Baht per person per trip.
