“Laem Phra Nang, the peninsula jutting out from the south coast of Thailand into the Andaman Sea, is better known simply as Railay. Offering a huge number of bolted sport routes, it’s a deservedly world famous climbing arena. Steep lines on vertical limestone afford stunning views over palm trees and sparkling azure waters. The rock itself often seems purpose built for climbing. Lines top out into surreal aerial caves, and stalactites stretch down from precipitous overhangs. Wall-to-wall sunshine and an abundance of restaurants and bars make for a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.”
