Absolutely stunning. We stayed at Railei Beach Club so the beach was on our doorstep and I could have lived there! Huge stretch of beach with white sand, incredible limestone cliffs and clear, shallow water. You can catch some impressive sunsets there too as people tend to gather on the beach to watch the sun go down.

One of the best places in the South of Thailand. From Ao Nang, the boat is only 100 baths per person, per way.

Go there - it makes a change from Thai food and.....it is very good Indian food. Portions are big so don't over order! Try the onion bhajees. Enjoy!

The sand is fine and nice to walk on. This is one of the best beaches I have had the pleasure to experience. I highly recommend renting a kayak and checking out the area.

The views and the climbs were fantastic. Couldn't have asked for a better place to enjoy the nature, the view and great natural walls for rock climbing. There were beautiful walls for beginners all the way to the advance climbers. I couldn't have been more happy with the surrounding. However, getting there from the the main town in Ao Nang... More
