Phra Nang Beach, Krabi

  • Phra Nang beach is part of a small peninsula located between the city of Krabi and Ao Nang beach. Phra Nang beach is also beside Railay beach which is accessible only by boat due to the high limestone cliffs cutting off mainland access. Phra Nang Beach is one of the most popular places to visit in Krabi.

    There is the famous "Princess Cave" or Tham Phra Nang Nok in Phra Nang beach. It is believed by local fishermen to be the home of a mythical sea princess.  Phra Nang beach is so spectacular that you can just lie there and soak in the sun. If you are adventurous it is possible to hike to the top of the headland to get spectacular views of the entire area. Swimming and snorkeling can also be enjoyed off this pristine, white sandy beach.

    Highlights: There is a shrine built inside the limestone cave which is dedicated to an ancient fertility goddess. Inside the limestone cave is a collection of strange phallic symbols, offerings and objects believed to help with fertility. Local fishermen still leave offerings although it's now becoming a local tourist attraction.

    Location:  Phra Nang Beach is located a short walk from Rayavadee Resort.

    Getting There: To reach Phra Nang from Ao Nang, you'll need to take a Longtail boat from Ao Nang
