East Railay (or Railay) is a “technical” beach on peninsula of the same name. Although, I even get lost which of the words to take in quotes – “technical” or “beach”. Essentially – it’s just embankment, concrete footpath, laid along the shore, along the sea.
In places, artificial stone mounds were created for it, and Partially – they fucked up the coast with cement, strengthening the natural mounds. The main purpose of East Railay is to serve as a pier. Here passenger and cargo boats are sailing from Ao Nam Mao, Krabi Town and from here they float somewhere else to other Raleigh beaches.

If you set such a goal, then go through the entire concrete path from edge to edge can be about 30 minutes. And, almost throughout concrete, you will observe a rocky shallow bottom overgrown mangroves.
Mangrove roots trash debris, which is why at low tide dull landscapes appear – plastic, foam, bags, boards, submerged boats. Swim here can only the most drunk or crazy comrade, and most likely, only at high tide.
In fairness it should be noted that a small cupola there is a beach on this shore, it is located in the farthest from Pra Nanga End, on the territory of the Railai Great View Resort & Spa .
Both the beach and the bottom are covered with large stones and large by sand. At high tide, the beach is completely hidden under water, and at low tide here you can sunbathe and, relatively comfortably swim, preferably in swimming shoes.
Entry, depth and waves
Believe me, you do not want to go into the water here. Depth on peephole, knee-deep during ebb and shoulders at high tide, but most of the beach lies opposite the mangroves or rocks. There is only one section where you can go down to the sea and sit on a beach that is more or less like a beach – the place is marked on map at the end of the post.
Sun beds and shade
Shadow creates coastal dense vegetation and high mountains among which is hidden resort. About any chaise lounges, umbrellas and other attributes of a beach holiday can be no question – put them here nowhere and nothing behind.
With the presence of Phra Nang and West Rail, on this stony the beach is simply no reason to be. Therefore, the main visitors here boatmen who have their own small dock and security guards on a smoke break.
Kupablelny plot on East Riley
On East Rail, most of the cafes and small shops of the peninsula, there are still a few hotels, here out a pair of resorts. The only one on East Railay throughout the peninsula pharmacy, there are special congresses at sea for machinery – tractors that are engaged in the transportation of goods on the mountainous terrain
Also, on the concrete path are all tourists who wish get on Phra Nang because the direct path through the territory hotels – no.
Houses and hotels on the beach
East Riley, though unsuitable, but it is here the bulk of hotels, both budget and not very concentrated. And if it does not interfere with walking to the beach for 10-20 minutes, then the location quite successful, one way you go – you will come to Riley, to another side – on Pranang.
Top rated hotels on the beach, this is a three star Avatar Railay у которого отличная территория, размещение вnice houses and a rather large pool that on this beach great advantage.

How to find the beach
Similar to the rest of the beaches of the peninsula, East Riley available by boat from anywhere in the resort of Krabi – Aonang, Nopparat Tara and Ao Nimmao. Some brave people make their way to the very little beach in the resort, walking on stones along the coast during low tide, thereby saving on one way ticket.
From West Riley, Ton Sai and Phra Nang can be reached in 10-20 minutes following the signs. In fact, there is only one road, which connects all four beaches of the Raleigh peninsula. Getting lost is difficult )
