The other day, sitting on the West Beach of Railay Bay, my friend Albert and I were talking and agreed on this: Krabi is probably one of the areas with the most typically Thai landscape. Huge limestone cliffs and hills surrounded by greenery. If you add some beautiful beaches to the mix, you get a cocktail of paradisiacal landscapes that will hardly disappoint anyone.
I have already written about Krabi in several articles, but in this one I will focus on the best beaches in Krabi. And, specifically, how they look from the air. On my last visit I took the drone with me, and took aerial pictures and videos of the beaches and islands of Krabi. Most of the images in this article were shot during one of the boat tours from Krabi that we offer at our InThailand Travel agency.
BEST BEACHES IN KRABI
🏝️ Phra Nang Beach: the best beach in Railay
And probably not only the best beach in Railay, but the best in the entire Krabi area. Phra Nang Beach is located in beautiful Railay Bay, and it is a fairly large beach with white sand and paradisiacal aquamarine waters. On one side of the beach you will find a small cave where local fishermen make offerings to the spirits, something common in Thailand. But what is not so common is that the offerings nothing other than wooden phalluses!
There is only one hotel on this beach, the most expensive in all of Railay: the Rayavadee.
