Situated on a small rocky peninsula between the towns of Krabi and Ao Nang, the Railay Beach has four parts, which are: West Railay, Pranang, East Railay and Ton Sai beaches.
The West Railay is beautiful and chic, while East Railay is more for backpackers and hippies.
The rocky limestone patches and boulders cut off the beach from the rest of the island.
Visitors can access the Railay Beach only by a boat.
The place boasts a great range of accommodation from bungalows and restaurants to high-end priced resorts and hotels. Railay has many eateries, massage parlors, and spaces for beach games and water sports.
