Railay Beach (also spelt Raileh or Railey and sometimes called bay) is located in the Krabi Province in Thailand and is only accessible by boat due to the high limestone cliffs cutting off the mainland. We took the boat from Ao Nang beach for B200 return, this was a public longtail where you had to wait for the ride to be full up before leaving – I’m sure you could also hire a private boat.
We visited Railay after being recommended to by several people, in hunt of the picture perfect beach you see in every Thailand brochure. So did we find what we were looking for?…
After some hunting we found our perfect Thailand beach, when we headed of to Railay I assumed we were going to find one beach and that would be the only beach, instead what you find is several beaches, hotel complexes and restaurants. Railay Beach is more than just a beach although you will find the perfect beach there too.
This whole area also boasts great rock climbing opportunities something I didn’t try but sure wish I had.
Railay beach is amazing isn’t it. So jealous you’re there now! Lovely photos too. Enjoy the rest of your time in Thailand. Katie
