We stayed at Rayavadee Resort on Railay Beach and loved watching the dramatic sunset every night from the beach bar. The surrounding hotels/shops are nothing special, but the overall vibe is very relaxed.

The scenic beauty, beach, the lagoon and of course the food. This was a great day trip to make from Krabi. Just watch out for choppy waters when you're on a long-tail boat!

Easily one of my favourite beaches in South-East Asia. We didn't stay here but did visit for the day based on a number of recommendations from friends and we were not disappointed! Beautiful soft, white sand and clear blue water - blissful! Be aware though, that due to the lack of competition, bar and restaurant prices are much higher here... More

Beautifull beach, great place to snorkle. Nice view with the rocks in the water. On our way to the 'hidden" beach we walked through a cave and got some visits from monkeys living around there, great to see.

This little beach is so nice & secluded - It is def worth a trip on the little boats to go down to see it. My favourite beach in Krabi & not many people there either like the main beach

Of all the beaches we hit while in Thailand this was my ultimate. White sand and rock formations that just blew ones mind. Great little spots to eat and drink on the beach. A beach not to be missed. garth.
