Railay Bay

Railay Beach consists of three parts: East Railay, West Railay and Phra Nang Cave Beach. The area is very small and can be walked over within half an hour. But it's famous for something. The sand quality of the West Railay is super good, and is the best place to see the sunset.

There are few sand beaches in the East Railay, mainly rock climbing. East Railay is known for its rock climbing in Asia. Cliff rock raises the wall from the beach. Looking from below, you will see many karst caves and climbers. As the beach can only be reached by long-tail boat, so there are naturally high quality sea water, European and American tourists rather than crowdy people.

Rayavadee is a truly beautiful honeymoon resort. It's setting on the edge of Krabi's National Marine Park at the heart of the stunning Phranang Peninsula perfectly blends lush green jungle, limestone cliffs, white sand beaches and the emerald waters of the Andaman Sea. The resort's award winning architecture and tropical landscapes were inspired by the atmosphere of a southern Thai village.
