My family and I have been here several times and would love to come back. Getting there you have to go by boat. There is no cars and this makes the place perfectly relaxing. Running on the west beach early in the morning is a joy even if you don't like to run. The shadows from the palm threes and... More

I arrived in Railay by long tail boat from Krabi. On approach the setting looks quite spectacular with high rock formations in abundance which many climbers come for, and beach itself it as good as any I've seen. I stuck to the left side and swam at west railay for the morning before heading to Ao nang later in the... More

Railay beach is beautiful! It looks just how it appears in a postcard! I recommended walking around the beaches and taking in the feel of the area, walking past the small businesses, stores, guesthouses and all the rock climbers! My friend and I attempted to climb to the view point - it had rained the day before! I recommend not... More

i went to this Railay beach from Aonang beach about 15 mins by long-tail boat that costs me 200 Baht for round-trip. I'd recommend to go this railay beach at very morning because it has many activities you can do for the entire day. At this beach has two portions, one is west-railay beach while another one is east-railay beach.... More

Beautiful scenes along the way,. Upon arrival a nightmare for me. No ladder for you to get down and I didnt realised beneath the boat... More

The beach is very nice. Beware of the monkeys, and beware of the ‘Chinese crowds’ that sometimes visit the beach.

Stunning beach in a fantastic natural setting surrounded by green limestone cliffs .The only reservation is that it's noisy and the smell of petrol of the many long-tail boats visiting from other hotels dilutes this beauty.

A nice view of the cliffs, recommend going off peak hours (morning or late evening) to avoid the large crowd. Otherwise it was a very relaxing walk.

My wife and I stayed here for a week in feb 2014. Beautiful beaches, a stunning sunset, good cheap food, a really chilled out place of the world I would highly recommend it.
