A very unique place to visit. A must do to walk from west (beach) to east, cause if you take the 'right road' (nearby rock climbing area) you get some really cool street vibe with lots of chillout reggae bars where you can have drinks...More

Beautiful, beautiful place. At least 3 beaches each more spectacular than the one before. We liked Pranang the best and it's less people. The food in Railay was disappointing - overpriced and they just bring you tourist versions, don't even ask about spiciness. This is...More

Without a doubt hands down the location in Thailand... We really wish we had have left this place to last. If you want a grand finally.. you should make this last stop if you're going to more than one place. The landscape is dramatic and...More

Railay beach is a fabulous sandy beach surrounded by spectacular rocky scenery. The beach was busy during our visit, but there was plenty of space (in both shady and sunny spots) still available. The cafes neighbouring the beach offered lots of reasonably priced drinks, snacks...More

This is a little gem that gets you away from the hustle and bustle of Ao Nang.. the beach is accessible by boat only and there's enough to do for a week without feeling bored and isolated .. it's a much nicer beach to swim...More

Echoing the above - the long boats are the typical transport. As others have mentioned, these are on the "roughing it side". While that's one reason I enjoyed it, be aware that these are not the same as the luxury boats... More

The climb to the viewpoint is very steep, almost 80 degrees or more. I did it on the spur of the moment in flipflops! The view is spectacular - you could see both East and West Railey. Dangerous climb over rocky terrain and... More
