There’s a reason why this is Asia’s number one destination for both backpackers and honeymooners. 

Railay Beach, Krabi

1 of 13

This pristine beach in Krabi, one of Thailand’s most beautiful areas, is surrounded by limestone cliffs and is absolutely stunning. It’s only accessible by (an admittedly choppy) boat ride, but once you get there, it almost feels like a private island—complete with plenty of hidden coves. This is also the ideal beach for the active, with rock climbing, snorkeling, kayaking, and more. On West Railay Beach, there’s a promenade with a few shops and restaurants, as well as ferries that will take you to Ko Phi Phi and Phuket.
