Admiring sweeping views from Railay View Point: located on high cliffs overlooking the beach, the point provides superb perspectives and photo opportunities of the surrounding dramatic coast, sea, and palm trees below. Steep and narrow pathways make access to the viewpoint difficult to navigate. Ropes extend over parts of the route to assist the climb, but appropriate footwear is still a must. Even with proper hiking boots, however, don't attempt the ascent after a heavy rainfall because the path becomes extremely slippery.

See the photo below? That’s the view you’ll be hiking for. Getting to the view point is rather easy. And it takes only around 20 minutes one way.

As you may sit down in some places, while climbing over huge rocks.
Beautiful cave, you will see a nice sunset in this beach. Better in the afternoon, in the morning is too crowdy
