Railey Beach, Krabi

 Ao Nang in Krabi

The island of Koh Phi Phi Phi, which is not far from Krabi, enjoys a reputation that has largely crossed borders for a long time... well, it is true that it is beautiful, but mass tourism is not my cup of tea, I prefer by far the quieter places.

If in Krabi city (as in many Thai cities) there is not really much to do, in Ao Nang you will certainly find the right shoe for you. Nothing to do with Patong, however, but then nothing at all!

Not far from Ao Nang, there is a small beach with some bungalows but also with quite expensive hotels, in a small paradise which can only be reached by boat: Railey Beach.

Just take a longtail boat from Ao Nang to Railey, about 15 minutes away, and it is a magnificent environment that you can admire with large cliffs surrounding the site offering a spectacular view.

Krabi has one of the most beautiful climbing spots in the world. You can also scuba dive, kayak, sail, snorkel, observe local wildlife, trek or visit caves.

 Le Boat Ticket pour Railay Beach

The small kisoque you see here is quite easy to find. It is located at the end of the beach road in Ao Nang, directly on the beach.

It is here that you can buy for a few bahts, a ticket that will allow you to board to Railey Beach, but also to other paradise islands like Koh Poda for example...

Once the ticket is in your pocket, all you have to do is wait a few minutes until the required number of passengers is reached on the longtail boat.

In principle the fare is calculated for a minimum of 6 people... if you are only three or four, the boat will leave, but the fare will be slightly higher.
A boat is almost ready to leave for Railay...
On the way from Ao Nang to Railay, you can admire some fantastic landscapes

 Arriving at Railay Beach

In Railay there are a few shops where you can hire the equipment needed to climb the beautiful cliffs above the sea
How can one not appreciate such a moment of solitude in front of the distant horizon... not to see time passing, alone, without noise, without any constraint
