The Railay Beach is stunning to come , visit and see the beauty . The Limestone formations, Pra Nang Beach and caves. In other hand , it is ok to do just for a day. It is very overcrowded and overpriced. I would not stay...More

This place looks beautiful as it is surrounded by beautiful cliff on either side and a trail of parked long boats giving adequate photo opportunities. But, this is extremely crowded during daytime in a short stretch giving little opportunity to enjoy.

We stopped here for lunch as part of an overnight tour. It is such a beautiful place. Took some lovely photos. Would be nice to have stayed here a couple of days to really enjoy the beaches. Was very busy though.

Just like out of a movie! I have never seen a place so beautiful! Our hotel was on Railay Beach West and in my opinion is the only side worth staying on. Even in high season (February) I did not find things too crowded. Kayaks...More

This beach is accessible only by boat. If you are staying in Ao Nang town, a good option is to visit it as part of the 4-island tour by 'long-tail' boats. These boats are also available for private charter. Tickets can be bought at Ao...More

I came here for rock climbing. There are some tours so if you haven't try it, it is easy to find and join the tour.

The beach gets busy and is a bit stony. That said the views of the caves etc is spectacular. There are quieter more sandy beaches.

I did not see any lockers but if you only take a small amount of money for food and drinks and leave valuables at your accommodation. Bags and towels etc seem pretty safe on the beach, we left ours but we were only swimming... More

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
