Tonsai Beach the paradise of climbers...
The beutiful and popular cliff along the shores of Tonsai Beach. Nice steep routes with great pockets and stalactites, 32 in all with a few multi-pitch routes. A climbers paradise (minus the crowds).With 12 sections and over 120 routes many of which are multi-pitch, the Railay West Beach and Tonsai Beach are the most spectacular climbing areas in Thailand if not in Southeast Asia. Thaiwand Wall is the most prominent and sought after section with multi-pitch routes of 100m+. While Tonsia Bay or Andaman Beach, at the northern end offers great overhang climbs over white sands and sparkling seas. It's a climber's paradise, there's no other way to describe it. Climbing is the main activity in Tonsai Beach but you can spend your time with Beach bars, getting stoned, and Kayaking. They are the top activites on Tonsai Beach.
