Don’t leave too soon from Railay Beach
First of all it is really worth it to not just make a day trip. Go there and find accommodation and enjoy the environment for a few days! There are all kinda of accommodations for all kind of needs – some cheap hostels and some luxury resorts.
Staying at Railay Beach will make your experience so much more enjoyable!
Railay Beach isn’t just one beach: There is an east – for sunrises -, a west beach – for sunsets – and the Phranang Cave Beach and its mystic legend.
2. Get up early
Something you must do is get up for sunrise and enjoy the colourful horizon at Phranang Cave Beach. You will mostly be alone on the beach – alone swimming in the turquoise clear water.
This beach is famous for the huge mountains in the middle of the sea close to the coast. To go with them is the legend of Phranang (Princess) Cave, an ancient Goddess of fertility and prosperity. Therefore you will face an impressive number of phallic images decorated with garlands.
3. Enjoy the west for sunset
The same for sunset! Check out the west side for sunset time when all the tourist boats have left already.
At the time when all the tourists on the beach you should find additional activities. Four suggestions for you:
4. Climb up some rocks
Railay Beach offers perfect spots for climbing. Many shops provide equipment and even a guide for inexperienced people.
There is one climbing part that leads you to a gorgeous viewpoint. You don’t need any skills, in fact we managed to get up with sandals! Once you made it to the viewpoint you can follow a path that brings you to a lagoon. That way might be bit harder people told us. We didn’t make it to the lagoon because we didn’t feel like keep climbing with sandals.
5. Change the view while kayaking
Another very enjoyable activity may be kayaking through all the huge rocks. You will view the coast from another perspective. Take a swim whenever you feel too sweaty!
6. Too hot outside, go to the cave
There is a huge stalactite cave! Take a walk and check it out. On the way you will meet many active monkeys looking for food. (There is a fee for the entrance to the cave.)
7. Discover other places
There is another nice beach called Ton Sai Beach. There might be less people. Take a kayak or walk through the forest.
You won’t realise the amount of tourist if you enjoy the beaches for sunrises and sunsets and do some other activities at midday and in the afternoon.
