About Railay

Adventure awaits in Railay, Thailand. This peninsula between Krabi and Ao Nang is a traveler’s dream. Tucked amidst mangroves, cliffs, and beautiful beaches visitors will find places to explore.

Rock climbers from across the globe will find cliffs for every level of difficulty. Watch that first step, it could be a doozie. Kayakers are able to paddle through natural tunnels, around the coves, and along the beaches. Rent one at Railay Beach. Bring your underwater camera and go scuba diving. Capture those rare shots of the underwater wildlife of the ocean. Follow the pathways to walk deep into the caves hidden among the rocks and trees. Join a Muay Thai class at the school and kick out your frustrations.

When you’re all tuckered out, relax on one of the beaches, and wander along the boardwalk path from the more rustic areas of East Railay to the West. Swanky boutiques, shops, bars, and restaurants await your pleasure.
