    Railay Peninsula Beaches

    0

    Railay East could not be more different than the three other beaches of Railay: it is a narrow beach and home to mangroves, local fishing boats and many birds. It's also the most convenient place to find a long-tail taxi boat to Krabi Town. A cement footpath has been built all along the beach and even further north, as it carries on two kilometres after The Last Bar – which used to be the previous end of the beach. It is a great addition for jogging or strolling. A new bar & restaurant named Tew Lay has been built on this path.

    A few local and hotel restaurants line the beach, providing welcome shade and a drink while you wait for your boat near the floating dock (a jetty made of large plastic boxes). At night they form the focal point of the Railay high season party scene. Bars like Skunk, Joy's and The Last Bar offer an eclectic mix of fire-twirlers, pumping music and care-free vibes until it's time to head back to your bungalow.

  • Along the pathway which links to Railay West (about a 10-minute walk) are dozens of small bungalows giving the feeling of a small self-contained village, which indeed it is, with restaurants and convenience stores in addition to the many bungalows.

    Accommodation can also be found around the north end of Railay East, nearer the nightlife scene. If you're interested in climbing, check out the climbing schools also located at this end of the beach. Diamond Cave is one of the main attractions in Railay East: featuring a wooden walkway and proper lighting, you can get away from the sun for a short visit in this cave housing bats and featuring superb rock formations (entrance fee is 40 baht).

    You can also walk from Railay East to Phra Nang Beach (about 10 minutes.) The two beaches are connected by a path which follows the base of the cliffs bordered by caves and stalactites. On this path, you’ll also find the challenging track that leads to the mysterious Hidden Railay Lagoon (Sa Phra Nang); similar to the Hongs in Phang Nga Bay, and only worth a visit at high tide, Railay Lagoon is very difficult to access due to the very steep and muddy path.
