Phra Nang Beach is situated between Krabi and Ao Nang beach as a part of a small peninsula. The coral reefs, caves, and cliffs are lapped around by crystal clear waters and are home to two small islands – Koh Rang Nok and Nai. Celebrated for its white duvet-soft sand, clear water, caves, and gorgeous coral reef, Phra Nang is also well recognized for its “Princess Cave” or Tham Phra Nang Nok. You can reach the beach by a 20-minute long-tail boat trip directly from Ao Nang or a 10-minute walk from Railay East.
Not only does the breathtaking view of the Phra Nang beach attracts tourists all year round, but it is also known to be the favorite spot for rock climbers. The Phra Nang Cave here is famous for a large number of wooden phallic symbols present in varying sizes apart from the soothing white sand and magnificent views of Krabi. Considered a symbol of fertility, people visit the Phra Nang shrine (nestled inside the cave) to offer wooden phallic symbols at the shrine, praying to cure their infertility problems. Legends have it that Phra Nang Cave is home to Phra Nang, the Princess Goddess, who lives in the cave underneath the cliffs. There are phallic symbols lying in the cave, which itself has an opening in the shape of a vulva. The sizes of phallic symbols vary from several inches to several feet. The cave is also visited by the local fishermen who pray to the Phra Nang Princess to save them from the dangers of the sea. Most tourists visit the Phra Nang Cave to soak in the sun, laze on the white sand beach and relish the stunning Krabi scenery.
