Pranang Cave, Ao Nang

3.0
#4 of 10 in Nature in Krabi Town
Enter Pranang 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 Pranang Cave into our Ao Nang trip maker site and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Wonderful place. We see none of the pics are not able to show the immensity of this cave. The Plaza also very cool ... a small minus: with odplywie, the bottom at strzezonej beach is covered with large amounts of "waste" of coral reefs

  • A tranquil and picturesque beach. Worth making the effort to go. Catch a long tail boat from Ao Nang beach for 200 thb return and treat yourself to some freshly cooked food from the boats moored there...  more »
  • Here we were with a bunch of tourists, 4islands tour, parking just 40 minutes and place the beautiful, white sand, and we want it to, not time left. Yes and the island offers entertainment-climbing-the next time you visit this place and definitely on the day and swim and mountain footpaths
