With soft sand and clear shallow water that’s just perfect for swimming, Phra Nang Beach is just the type of beach you would want to relax in when you want to get away from the crowd. A stone’s throw away from the islands of Koh Rang Nok and Khai Nai, Phra Nang Beach is set against a backdrop of picturesque limestone cliffs and offers a stunning view of Krabi.
The Phra Nang beach is flanked by emerald seas on all sides. The 450-metre stretch of the beach will let you soak up the sun, as you relax on its soft white sandy beach overlooking its calm, shallow waters.
Phra Nang Beach has a multitude of thrilling activities that you can enjoy — like rock climbing, snorkelling, and exploring caves that are visited by locals and travellers alike.
One of the reasons that locals visit the Phra Nang beach is the Princess Cave (Tham Phra Nang Nok) — dedicated to the Goddess of fertility. The cave has countless phalluses statues that locals give offerings of incense and flowers.
You can also have a different food experience at Phra Nang beach with many long tail boats docked here serving a wide variety of foods and snacks. Some hiking treks here take the off-beat route to find amazing viewpoints where you can peer down at the entire beach.
