Great view after a moderate climb.

Rain? Stay away.
Dark? Stay away.
Drunk? Stay away.
Children? Stay away.
The first 60 meter climb is at a severe and steep angle and some agility and strength is required.
Once over the hard part.. the hike to the lookout point is fairly easy.
And the view absolutely worth it.

A must do when on Railay beach!

The climb to this viewpoint is not to be taken lightly. It is strenuous and you need to be careful but once you reach the top, you will be rewarded with an awesome view over west and east Railay beaches.

Fantastic view!

Well worth the steep scramble up and down! We debated doing it with our two kids and decided to leave them behind. Wise decision as it was a very steep climb up and down! The view was gorgeous.

Wear sneakers and non-white clothes. The red dirt will stain everything and you need the traction of sneakers.

Note- if you want to make it all the way to the lagoon, you have to scramble up the hill, all the way down to the lagoon, back up the hill, and then down again so be prepared for the trip!

Great Spot
Feb 2020
One of the best spot for making photos of Railay peninsula. You must to climb first and the path can be not so easy to everyone. Better to have good shoes, Not slippers or crocs.

Moderate hike for a good view
Mar 2020
A 20 minute or so hike initially up a steep cliff with ropes and a short jungle walk gets you to the main viewpoint. Well worth an hour or so.

Good view!

This was a nice trip and we were not dissapointed by the view. Its not as far and as difficult as to the lagoon, so most people can go here. You should try it!

I had low expectations but it's actually really good and not overly busy

Worth the climb up here, just to see the two beaches of Railay from a different viewpoint and relax.

It is a good climb up, not too difficult but try to have moderate fitness and good shoes on.

You will be covered in red clay/dirt so be prepared to be both dirty and sweaty.

It took me about 8 minutes from the bottom to the viewpoint, it's not that hard.

Watch the peninsula from Railay Viewpoint!
Mar 2019
The trail to Railay Beach Viewpoint is an adventurous hike. For finding the start point, go to the south of Railay East till you reach the landmark of a limestone cliff. Take a right at the forked path till you see ropes hanging down from the mountain and some carvings in the mountain's body which form some steps for climbing. The wall's climbing is somehow challenging and it's not recommended, if you don't have suitable shoes or if it's rainy. Only the first part of the hike is difficult and the rest of it is easy, totally you'll need enough power to reach the viewpoint, but the impressive views at the viewpoint are worth the workout. Although Railay Viewpoint is a small opening in the trees, offers a spectacular panoramic view of Railay Beach. You can enjoy a great scene of emerald-green sea water and you can also see boats in East Railay Beach & the waters of West Railay Beach. Even Tonsai Beach is visible. In fact the entire peninsula is visible from the Viewpoint.

Fantastic view

This is a must for people who stay at Railay beach. The climb is quite difficult and steep but it‘s worth the view over Railay.
I recommend to wear closed shoes or sneakers.
