Railay Beach Rock Climbing & The Emerald Cave

This two-part challenge started at the famous Railay Beach, where we explored the beautiful island cliffs by climbing up them! Railay (Rai Leh Beach Thailand), is a small peninsula between the city of Krabi and Ao Nang in Thailand, and although it’s filled with tourists, the natural landscape is incredible.

It was the perfect place to try outdoor rock climbing for the first time, and the beach views from the top were definitely worth the struggle getting up.

From an intense morning of rock climbing, we ventured just offshore to cool off in the turquoise water surrounding Thailand’s south islands.

The coral was stunning and tropical fish were everywhere, but the highlight of this mission laid just beyond an 80 meter swim through a dark tunnel.

Diving to the Emerald Cave (Morakot Cave) in Thailand

Sealed off from the outside world by massive rock walls, was the hidden lagoon known as the Emerald Cave (Morakot Cave). It was like something out of a fairytale, complete with a white sand beach surrounded by thick green foliage.
