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.

    Cave is a large cave in La hopes go by than you think small would have been disappointed. A bunch of small namgeunsang in a cave next to the beach, but you don't have to actually see and. Next to it is the people watching to rock climbing.
