We got the long-tail boat over from Ao Nang which took about 20 minutes. Waters were a hit choppy but it was a really exciting trip. Be prepared to get splashed but don't get uptight about it as the sun will dry you off quickly. The beach is incredible with amazing views and a stunning beach. The little sand crabs... More

The beach is amazing. West side is the beach and the hotels. The east side is where all the bars and eateries are. Great place to relax.

A fantastic beach. The limestone outcroppings make for a dramatic view from the beach. There is a little bit of trash found along the beach, but for Thailand it wasn't bad at all. Some beautiful sunsets here...

I had heard so much about this place over the pasty 5 years, everyone telling me how great it is. I actually very much likes the bay and it's car-less environment. The food from all but ONE place I ate was overprices, tasteless crap. Honestly I ate 12 meals overall and ONLY one of them was any good. There rest... More

We found a quiet place for us but the main part was very crowded (it was October which is not high season I think). The sunset was absolutely beautiful. The other side of the peninsula was kind of ugly because the sea... More

But a very close second. Railay is where the pool is and watching the tide come in and out every day from the pool was very special.

If you are looking for a tranquil and breathtaking place to spend with your partner, look no further than Railay Beach. What we loved the most is that we could hire canoes and row ourselves to Pranang Cave Beach!
