Railay beach is a short boat ride from either krabi town or Ao nang. This beach can get busy during the high season as it popular. Lots of lovely restaurants here too. Also tonsai is just around the corner and is popular with rock climbers.

From Ao Nang, take a long boat (200bt return ticket) and go before 9am. You can take a quick breakfast on Railey beach itself before starting your trek to Phranang Beach. Get there before the crowd.

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
