Krabi province Page 8, How to Get to Koh Phi Phi  

Hat Noppharat   Situated 17 km from the provincial town of Krabi, Hat Noppharat Thara (Noppharat Thara Beach) is a 3-km long sandy beach lined with dense casuarinas. The beach, paved with tiny seashells, was formerly called Hat Khlong Haeng. The area is a long beach and stretches all the way to the island of Koh Khao Pak Khlong.

 

Hat Railey ( Railey Beach East / West )  is surrounded from both sides by breathtaking towering limestone cliffs, thus making the area isolated from the mainland – only accessible by boat. Rai Le or Rai ley West has a world

class white sand beach and is the longest of the beaches in this area. It goes without saying this is

also the beach that most tourists flock to. Rai ley  East is popular ‘hippy’ hang-out and offers cheaper

accommodation than the West side. Unlike Rai ley West, Railey East beach is severely affected

by the tides and has mangroves. R.East has its own beauty but the mainstream tourist would choose

Railey West for beach quality.

 

Pra Nang Beach (Princess Cave Beach) next door to Railey, has a much comparable if not better beach to Rai ley West and is the home to the 5 star Rayavadee Resort and Spa. Krabi's beach’s are all public domain so the guests at Rayavadee have to share the beach with the day-trippers from Rai ley and Ao-Nang. This is not so bad but this also attracts a multitude of T-shirt, trinket and food sellers.

 

Hat Ton Sai (Ton Sai Beach) Neighbouring Rai Le (Railey) West but vastly different in terms of beach and tourist scene. The hard core backpackers all hang out here as it is one of the best areas for climbing and the accommodation can be around a tenth of the price of Rai ley. This beach also has one of the best nightlife scenes of the whole Krabi area! As of late this beach seems to be attracting more of the "flash packer" crowd who do not necessarily want the cheapest accommodation but just want the Ton Sai experience.

 

Koh Talabeng  This is a limestone island similar to Koh Phi Phi Le with numerous small and attractive beaches and caves that are clearly visible during low tide. Another attraction is the swallows that can be seen on the island.This is a limestone island similar to Koh Phi Phi Le with numerous small and attractive beaches and caves that are clearly visible during low tide.
