Big stretch of sand with a nice view and gentle seas. Too murky to snorkel at this time of year, but otherwise great.

Railay beach is really worth visiting. So tranquil and unspoilt, great beaches. Not so busy when we went, but this was probably due to us visiting in July which is Monsoon season.

The best is the sunset in the beach, with few people around and funny environment. There are a bar that put towels with torches in the sand in order to have a drink in front of the sea in the afternnon

Visited Railay from Aonang by longtail on 11/8/14. At high tide there is zero beach anywhere on the island,had to wade through foot deep water to walk to phra nang cave. Hard to rate a beach when there isn't one at high tide,my tip if you like beaches,go to Australia.

I love Railay beach. I first traveled there in 2001 when there was nothing a but a few bungalows and a couple of bars and restaurants. Although it is now a busy and popular tourist destinations i still feel like i am home as soon as a step off the Longtail boat onto the beach. Surrounded by huge Limestone karsts... More

The journey here is great, however similar to Ao Nang beach. Not very big. West side is 100 times better than the East side.
