Pranang Cave, Ao Nang

(3/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Not a cool cave as you can't go into it. It's over crowded with 100s of people on this small beach. Don't waste your time going here.  more »
  • On a nice little Beach (Railay East), you get two small caves where are exposed of the phallus in wood of all sizes, and all colors. The local belief says that bathroom was the wife of a local fisherman who disappeared D out to sea. Riddled with the expectation and the sadness caused by the loss of his beloved, she threw herself from the top of the cliff and his mind there remained housed in the rock. Furthermore, to get a good catch, fishermen have a habit of related phallus wooden as d offering. Others say that if you get pregnant, you can also bring a phallic statue and make a wish. In the real world, the very charming beach is invaded many ships composed of dozens and dozens of tourists who come to take their pictures and put before giant gender... Little d interest and it brews a lot of people for nothing... the tranquility of this beautiful beach there is sacrificed for economic reasons. Such a shame! :-( Peace and love on you friends, Yazid.
