Beach paradise on the Andaman Sea

Thailands  beach paradise, Railay Beach also frequently referred to as Rai Leh or Rai Lay — is a small peninsula just south of the town of Ao Nang, Krabi. It’s attached to Krabi’s mainland, but cut off by towering limestone cliffs from all the roads and towns.

This isolation from the mainland, and the complete absence of cars and roads, gives Railay Beach a very island feel. All photos in this gallery can be enlarged by a click
