The weather was great for us during our 3 day stay on Railay. The beaches are nice. Viewpoints are hard to access but a good challenge if you're up to it (see Railay Viewpoint for review). Nice island pace. Lots of "happy" places for those...More

We caught a long boat from Ao Nang to Railay beach in the morning. It was high tide and the waves were hitting the wall, meaning everyone had to wade through the water for about 100m until getting to the beach. This was bad for...More

This beach is often described as one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Is it really?! Well, I don't think it is. It's definitely very pretty. Though what you don't see on the pictures and postcards are the unpleasantly looking old hotels and...More

Very nice, postcard beach. Noise from the longtail boats can get irritating but you get use to it. Water clean, no corals, warm and not deep. lenty of shops and restaurants. Go there!

Stunning beach, although very rocky near the shore. Not many eateries nearby, but as a day trip ideal. Amazing rock formations all round the beach, very scenic.

We are currently staying here for four nights. This area is reminiscent of Koh Samui in the eighties. The beaches are beautiful, lots of wonderful caves and rock formations, cute little bars and cheap restaurants.
