Railay Beach, known by the locals as Rai Leh, is one of the most popular destinations in Krabi. Its impressive limestone cliffs line, its picturesque beaches and the golden sand and turquoise water make Railway Beach the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing beach vacation.
You can choose to take either a taxi or the shuttle bus for your transfer from Krabi Airport to Railay Beach. Whichever transfer option you choose, you will then need to take a boat to reach Railay Beach, as it isn’t accessible by land. The best boat terminal is in Ao Nang, as the boat departures are more frequent and the journey time is just 15 minutes. The cost of a single ticket on the boat from Ao Nang Pier to Railay Beach is €2.50 (TBH 100), so be sure to add this to your total journey cost for both the taxi and the shuttle bus.
An airport taxi or private transfer will take around 40 minutes to reach Ao Nang Pier and will cost a fixed fare of €16 (THB 600). Taking the shuttle bus will take closer to 60 minutes to reach the pier, but will cost just €4 (THB 150) per person.Welcome Pickups offers meet and greet services and a friendly introduction to Krabi at the same price as a regular taxi.
