Tonsai Beach is perhaps the wildest, trendiest, and most expensive of all the beaches of Krabi. For a long time, this wild place was wildly popular with hippies and rastamen. Now a whole business program has been launched here, which has made a simple place a real, not cheap paradise for yogis, rock climbers, and extreme lovers. Since 2015, they began to build a hotel here, so there are no more untouched places on the once-abandoned beach.
You can get to this exotic beach by boat taxi from Nopparat Tara or Ao Nang. Fans of extreme sports can get here on foot from West Railay. One of the paths goes through destroyed rocks, and there are even ropes stretched on especially dangerous sections. The journey takes about 10 minutes. There is a longer and more exciting road that starts at the Walking Street sign and goes through the cave. You will have to pay a symbolic amount to enter it, but the impressions of visiting it are unforgettable. It is especially good to get into it during high tides. Tourists are guaranteed to take hundreds of spectacular photos here.
There are usually quite a few people on the Tonsai Beach from April to October.
