This is an interesting cave with large wooden phalluses. Also known as the Princess Cave or penis cave, this is named after the Phra Nang princess. Here, the fishermen and other visitors make offerings to the symbolic phallus of Shiva to help with fertility. They also believe that the sea-princess will help them bring good results in fishing.

The Railey viewpoint and lagoon is a tiny point surrounded by trees to view the gorgeous sunset at Railay. Located up the Phra Nang beach, the viewpoint requires a small but rather difficult climb to reach up there. There are ropes on the way, but you need good shoes and grip to climb that. This climb doesnÍt fit many people and therefore there is less crowd up there, for you to enjoy the stunning view of Railay in peace. The lagoon is located nearby and requires you to climb down from the viewpoint, which is again steep and you have to be cautious.
