Railay Beach is in the Krabi province in southeast of Thailand. Some people spell Railay Beach as “Railey Beach”, “Railee Beach”, or even “Raylee Beach”. Near Ao Nang in Krab, it is surrounded by many small beautiful islands.

How to access to Railay Beach?

Although Railay Beach is on the mainland, it is surrounded by limestone cliffs and isn’t accessible by road. Most people get to Railay by taking a boat from either Krabi, Koh Phi Phi, or Phuket.

We arrived in Railay Beach on a beautiful day. We started from Phi Phi Islands by boat. I was excited to be on my way to the next destination and wondered what it was going to be like.

When we arrived at Railay Beach it was low tide, so the boats had to anchor about 100 metres away from the shore! So we had to jump off and carry our personal bags through the mud before starting our search for accommodation. That was going to be fun while carrying our 25 kg luggage!

Nightlife in Railay Beach

Railay Beach is not the place to go if you’re looking to party. There are plenty of other options in Thailand for that. But Railay Beach does have a small number of “chill out” style bars that are perfect for enjoying a relaxing drink by the sea.

You can watch the sunset on the West Railay before heading across to the East side, where there’s a greater selection of bars. If you keep walking north along the East side, you’ll eventually end up at the last bar. From memory, the name of that bar is “The Last Bar” so you can’t miss it!

World famous rock climbing, Railay Beach Thailand

The following day everything was peaceful. We got up the next morning and decided to go for walk. It was really different from the previous day. The mud was gone and the tide was now very close to the buildings along the East beach. We were knee deep in the water as we walked along the sidewalk.

The water were a little bit above my knees. As we can see is the rock claim up there, Now I real like this is the world famous beach for international rock claim.

While we walk pass and on the way to another side of the mountain. It have a lot of monkeys near by. So I try to walk pass quickly as possible.

Suddenly we got to the place, is the one a lot people were talking about. I very impress with stunning of the Railay Beach. As while we lay on the white sand beach enjoy saw people do kayak, so we can see some people claim up and down from the hopping mountain as well.
