Railay Beach is actually a small peninsula which makes up four beaches. Railay which was once unknown and hidden away towering limestone cliffs is now one of Thailand's most sought-after beach areas. Located next to Ao Nang Beach, Railay is easily accessible by boat (no roads) from Ao Nang, Krabi Town, Lanta and Phi Phi. Railay presents a tranquil and extraordinary destination, so far away and cut off from the outside world.
In just one small peninsula you'll find gorgeous white sand beaches, soaring limestone cliffs, viewpoints, caves and a lagoon hidden inside the cliffs, shaped and fed by the changing tides. The best thing about Railay is that everything is within walking distance.
At Railay there are no roads, no buses, no cars, only footpaths and sandy trails. Although it's actually connected to the mainland, the spectacular Phra Nang Peninsular is effectively cut off from the rest of Krabi by limestone headlands and steep jungle valleys, the only access is by sea. The very picture of tropical paradise, with no roads and no hassle, Railay offers lazy days, adventure forays and chilled-out evenings.
Railay is accessible by boat only from Ao Nang, Krabi Town, Koh Lanta and Koh Phi Phi.
