Attended a business networking event at one of the villas here and was amazed by the spectacular views on offer, they Railay blow you away! Kayaks are on offer and swimming is also at your disposal but watch out for the sea floor, Dwayne Johnson...More

The long boat ride to the beach is fabulous. At a cost of 80BHT return a head - is a bargain. You climb aboard from the water. The views on the way to the beach are spectacular. There is very little shade on the beach....More

Amazing views! Beaches can get really crowded though. There are some nice & relaxing bars inland with friendly locals.

The beach was stunningly beautiful - but it was not the kind you would swim in. Apart from the restaurants and bars, do not expect to do much on this island. Would not recommend this place for families with children.

The view from the beach Railay West is scenic! Absolutely must see! But if you want to relax and like it quiet, then better look for another place to stay. Longtail boats come and go every five minutes, masses of people stay on the beach...More

We accessed Railay from Ao Nang beach which cost us 200bht return on the long tail boat. On the way you get great views of the beaches along the coast. This beach wasn't as impressive as other islands I have visited such a Kho Samui....More

The beach is really very beautiful. Untouched natural beauty well taken care. Resorts and restaurants are also there. Go via Ferry ride from Ao Nang Beach. Its just excellent.

I did not see any lockers but if you only take a small amount of money for food and drinks and leave valuables at your accommodation. Bags and towels etc seem pretty safe on the beach, we left ours but we were only swimming... More

Echoing the above - the long boats are the typical transport. As others have mentioned, these are on the "roughing it side". While that's one reason I enjoyed it, be aware that these are not the same as the luxury boats... More
