Railay is a dream holiday destination come true; situated a mere 10 minute cruise by long-tail boat East of Ao Nang in Krabi Province, it offers vacationers to somehow step-back into the past in a preserved natural environment of outstanding beauty. Dramatic limestone cliffs separate Railay from the mainland making it a peninsula featuring four beaches on a 100 ha area. This is picture-postcard territory, especially Railay West Beach which, once seen is never forgotten.
Railay has been a traveller secret since the late ‘70s, before becoming popular at the beginning of the ‘90s when tourism increased in Thailand. Despite this fame and the consequential growth of infrastructures there, Railay has retained its easy-going and laid-back feel.
