Take a dip into the calm waters at Railay Beach, an isolated strip of sand accessible only by boat. The beach especially attracts rock climbers eager to tackle the limestone cliffs that frame it, with some 700 climbing trails in the surrounding area. Whether or not you scramble up the cliff face you'll enjoy the spot's relaxed atmosphere, clean sand, and clear waters. Onsite restaurants and other amenities cater to a wide range of tastes. The impressive cliffs of the coast provide excellent photo opportunities, and the isolated nature of the beach means you get unimpeded shots of some of Thailand's best coastal landscape. Plan your visit to Railay Beach and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Krabi Town trip itinerary planner.

Railay Beach Reviews
We enjoy Krabi’s outstanding wonders from stunning limestone cliffs, turquoise waters to powdery white-sand beaches. In short a true heaven on earth. Please read my blog to read about my experience..... more »
I really liked Railay Beach. The beach is wide and the sand soft. It’s good for swimming, didn’t seem too crowded, and surrounded by awesome cliffs. more »
Decent views, but quite noisy. Reasonable amount of shade.
Too crowded and noisy. But lovely
