Description [Suggest Change]

Tonsai Bay located on the western side of the peninsula and north of Railay West.

Accommodations are not on the beach but rather up the hill, much cheaper than the other areas of Railay. There are several mini-marts and a couple of internet cafes. This area has the highest climber population.

Getting There [Suggest Change]

Long-tail boat from Ao Nang. There is a jungle trail from Railay West or you can hire a long-tail boat. From Railay East there is a longer jungle hike.
