About Travel to Railay

Railay Beach sits on the edge of a spectacular peninsula with limestone cliffs. Railay is located in Krabi Province, not far from the very popular and over developed Ao Nang Beach.

Railay Beach

Railay Beach is the most developed of the 4 tourist areas on the peninsula, all of which are only accessible by sea because of the steep hills and dense jungle separating the peninsula from the rest of the mainland.

Climbing in Railay

The main attraction for visitors to Railay Beach is to enjoy the coastal views and for a fairly high proportion of visitors to take a climbing course. There are some excellent climbing routes in the surrounding hills and for this reason Railay has emerged as the best known climbing centre in South East Asia.

Railay West

Railay itself stretches across two sides of the peninsula. The better beach is in Railway West. Railay West has a promenade, line of shops and the most expensive accommodation on the island.

Railay East

The Railay East area has more amenities, including a Muay Thai school, and cheaper accommodation. The beach on Railay East is unsuitable for swimming. Railay as a whole has transformed from being a laid back and difficult to reach backpacker destination to being a densely packed group of concrete hotels and bungalows, noisy bars and restaurants, with a large number of young foreign visitors coming for holidays between November and April.

Tonsai and Ao Phra Nang Beaches

Development, however, has not ruined the scenery which is why the place has carried on being popular. A short distance from Railay are the less developed Tonsai and Ao Phra Nang Beaches which you can walk to through jungle trails or reach by boat. Both of these beaches are fantastic places to visit and reminiscent of the way Railay used to be before it became a popular mainstream tourist destination.
