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 er nydelig. Vi har bodd nær stranda en uke og har storkost oss. Anbefales. Ikke ypperlig for snorkling, men kajakker til utlån. more »Railay Beach is lovely. We have lived near the beach for a week and have storkost us. Is recommended. Not great for snorkelling, but kayaks (free).
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
