Phra Nang Cave, Ao Nang

3.8
#5 of 15 in Nature in Krabi Town
Enter Phra Nang Cave, where stalactites glitter as they hang suspended from the ceiling. Nearby a small grotto holds a shrine to the spirit of the drowned princess (phra nang) who gave the beach its name. Fisherman seeking the princess' favor leave red-tipped wooden phalluses of all different sizes by the shrine. On the beach outside the cave, relax on the white sands and watch as rock climbers attempt to scale the rock face looming over you. Put Phra Nang Cave into our Krabi Town trip maker site and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • The beach is also nice, but certainly not accessible, completely overrun with loong boat leaving for the bathroom barely a 50 meters, so a deafening noise of motors and oil on water, hundreds of tourists piled x bathe in a small pool bordered besides very dirty garbage everywhere. Shun it since you would have to bring in Riverboat money down the drain.

  • Best beach around Krabi, not so crowded with beautifull caves, monkeys and rock climbing.
  • We visited this on suggestion from friend. Pleasant walk to the cave and very nice surroundings. Cave and objects interesting and reason why interesting too. If we visit again we will take some kind of penis to add to the collection. Worth a visit, even it is just to enjoy the surroundings. If you like climbing, there is a rock climbing area next to the cave. Visited April 2015
  • Clean beach. Best in Railey.
  • This beach is so beautiful! The sand is soft and water is clear! The only one thing that I don't like is there are so many ants on the beach everywhere!

Where to stay in Krabi Town

Most accommodations in Krabi Town are located to the southwest of the airport, south of Phet Kasem Road. A selection of boutique hotels jostles for position on the eastern side of the peninsula. The options here can differ greatly in terms of views and facilities, but they are all conveniently located close to the sandy riverbanks. If you're looking for something basic but comfortable, look at the guesthouses and hostels located on side streets just back from the water.
