Between Krabi and Ao Nang: Railay Beach

See the locations on Railay Hotels Google Map
See the Thai Meteorological Weather forecast for Krabi

Railay Beach: Railay is a peninsula between Krabi and Ao Nang, accessible only by boat, because limestone cliffs cut the way from the land. The beach on the westside is for swimming. In 10 minutes you walk to Railay East, where you find a mangrove beach, some backpacker-acommodation, restaurants, massage shops, minimarts, a pharmacy and other shops. See Railay Beach Guide by, see and read, what Sarah Lee writes on
