Only accessible by boat, Railay beach showcases spectacular stacks of rock-forming headlands that welcome to an extraordinary world. In just one small peninsula, you’ll find gorgeous white sand beaches and soaring limestone cliffs which attract rock climbers from all over the globe. Railay beach is a photographer’s dream. Railay is also a name for a small peninsula in Krabi Province. It is surrounded by cliffs that prevent access by land, which is why it can only be reached through the sea. If you are looking for a place to stay, you should stay in Krabi and visit this area during the day. We separate Railay beach into two areas – West and East.
Railay West is a popular part of the beach to unwind and sunbake while watching in awe at massive cliffs in the background that attract rock climbers from around the world. Whilst Railay East offers all types of other exotic adventures. Phra Nang Cave, which is also known as the Diamond Cave, is one of the most famous. The cave is located on the east side of the peninsula. It is a popular place of promenade illuminated by rock formations that shine. Another renowned sight you can visit is Phra Nang Shrine. The shrine was built to honor the spirit of a princess who gave the beach her name. It is characterized by having small sanctuaries or caves, where fishermen ask for favors.
