On third day we decided to go to Railay Beach. Railay Beach cannot be accessed by road due to the high limestone cliffs cutting off mainland access, so we took a boat ride from Ao Nang beach. The area popular with its beautiful beaches and quite relaxing atmosphere. It is also popular destination for rock climbers from all over the world with many limestone cliffs route to climb. The four main areas of Railay consist of Pranang, West Railay, East Railay and Tonsai. We didn't go to Tonsai. Joining us were Agata & Lisa.

Mahin guided us to discover a hidden Lagoon between East Railay & West Railay. To get to the lagoon we had to do jungle tracking (more climbing actually) going up muddy trails through a hill and then went down into the lagoon. To most of us in our middle age and lower fitness level, it was very challenging expedition. It took us 3 hours to get in and out of the place.

After that we went to check out the beautiful panoramic West Railay Beach. There were people climbing the cliff near the beach but we went swimming instead. After watching the sunset, we went back to Ao Nang.

People are being drawn to Krabi in search of the idyllic beach which Phuket and Koh Samui offered decades ago but in danger of losing it when it gets bigger and heavily commercialized. Krabi is in smaller scale compare to Phuket in term of entertainment and facilities. Good place to chill out, more family friendly and perfect place for those seek for adventures.
