Railay West Beach is one of Railay's four beaches, along with Tonsai Beach, Railay East Beach and Phra Nang Beach. Railay West in particular is considered to be amongst the best beaches in South Thailand due to its impressive and spectacular scenery at any time of the day. The beach area is particularly picturesque during sunset when the sky turns into beautiful shades of crimson and when fishing boats arrive and depart. The area is a great place to sit back and admire the limestone cliffs in the distance. These cliffs take on various shapes and forms and make a pretty sight, with trees and shrubs covering the rock surface. Sports such as football and volleyball are also common at the beach.
