Railay Beach is only accessible by boat due to the massive limestone cliffs which cut off access to the main town, but it’s a short longtail ride from Ao Nang to Railay. I decided to get a long tail boat from Ao Nang to West Railay for 200 baht return.

Railay’s two sides offer varied experiences. West Railay features the second most beautiful beach on the peninsula and several high-end resorts and restaurants. East Railay is on the water as well but has no usable beach, as it has been taken over by mangroves.
