Railey beach also known as Rai Leh, is a small peninsula between the city of Krabi and Ao Nang in Thailand. It is accessible only by boat due to high limestone cliffs cutting off mainland access. These cliffs attract rock climbers from all over the world, but the area is also popular due to its beautiful beaches and quiet relaxing atmosphere. Accommodation ranges from bungalows and medium-priced resorts in East Railay to a collection of luxury resorts focused on West Railay, though one, Rajavadee, spans both waterfronts and also has a beachfront restaurant at Ao Phra Nang. The four main areas of Railay consist of Phra Nang, West Railay, East Railay, and Ton Sai. Ton Sai caters to climbers and the backpacker set and is more rustic in character than the glitz of West Railay and the shops and restaurants of the East Railay boardwalk. Read more

It is an ethereally beautiful place. Powdery white sand gives way to the shallow-shelving waters of the Andamans. Around are dotted beautiful and very oddly shaped islands.

It’s marred a little by any look southward where a huge industrial pier of decaying twisted metal The northern end of the beach is national park and indeed the surrounds of Tubkaek as a whole have a fairly jungly wooded feel.
