What to see and what to do on Railay

Usually people come here by longtail boats (from 8 am till 6pm). You can take a boat ride from Ao Nang beach or Nopharat Thara beach or Ao Nammao Pierce. It costs 100 baht per person one way. And in 10 minutes by water you find yourself on a beautiful beach surrounded by cliffs. There is one extreme way to get to Railay from Ao Namao on foot along the shore when thtre is the lowest tide. But be careful you need to wear comfortable shoes not flip-flops. First think beforehand then act. Visit Phranag bai (in English "Diamond Cave"). It costs 40 baht for an adult and 20 for a child. The cave is in 10 minutes walk from East Railay, not so far away. It is the most famous sight on Railay.

Phranang Cave is on Phranag Beach on its left side. You will be surprised to discover numerous phalluses in the cave, that people leave as a worship. this beach is quite popular among tourists and usually crowded during the day. To the right of west Railay there is Ton Sai Beach, only a narrow path leads there along the cliff. It is a good place for rock - climbing. You can try your chance after some training with all the necessary equipment. The cost is 500-1000 baht, it depends on time of climbing and other conditions.

A Viewpoint between PhraNang and East Railay has such an amazing view. But it is hard to climb almost vertically up the rocks covered with red clay. In general it takes 10 minutes to get on top. And it is worth all nice pictures from up there.

Walking Street is a small narrow street. There are not so many things to see, just some shops, cafees and guest houses. The prices for food and goods are a little bit higher than in Ao Nang. Canoing costs 200 baht per hour and 900 baht for the whole day. You can take it on the West Railay.
