This trek starts with a steep scramble / trek up to the low view-point over Railay and Tonsai. This is a sight not to be missed - one of the most beautiful places on the planet, viewed from above !
Next the whole party treks down towards the lagoon, where not a sound disturbs the utter silence and stillness.
It is possible to reach the lagoon, and swim then swimming in its under-lit ultramarine waters, without being roped up, but this is only recommended for strong climbers, as if you slip you could have a nasty accident.
While many people climb down to the lagoon without ropes every day, it is not something we recommend doing, for safety reasons. Swimming is only possible at or near to high tide.
The trek then leads on to the famous Phra Nang beach for lunch, a swim and relaxation.
Cliff-jumping comes next, either from the low cliff, or the 7m-high cliff - this doesn't sound too high, but it looks like a long way, when looking down. We need to time this activity to coincide with high tide, so the exact itinerary varies.
After donning head-torches, you then climb fixed ladders and ropes through the pitch-black interior of the massive hollow Thaiwand Wall karst, after which you arrive at a stunningly beautiful viewpoint high above Railay and Tonsai. This view is often used in posters published by the Tourist Authority of Thailand. From here you can if you wish abseil down to West Railay beach.
The trip through the Thaiwand Cave is particularly popular with all our customers, and is the one part of the itinerary we never skip.
This is a very flexible trip, which can be varied from a very soft to a more demanding adventure day out. Children as young as five can manage most but not all of the activities.

It is possible to do this day-trip independently, without paying the price in the table below. All you need are a good pair of shoes, a torch, to know when high tide is and to have a map of the Railay attractions. For customers booking a holiday with us, we will draw you a map of the Railay attractions above when we meet and greet you on arrival. We will also let you know at what time high tide is.
The flexibility in the available activities above means that we need to always run this as a private trip, where you do what you want to do, without having to worry about what other people want to do.
