Pranang Cave, Ao Nang
(3/5 based on 950+ 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.
