Visit Beautiful Beach of Phra Nang Beach in Thailand
Adventure awaits at Phra Nang Beach, located on the each coast of the Railay Peninsula. Known for its limestone cliffs and crystal waters, this beach attracts hordes of active tourists, clamouring for a chance to snorkel, kayak, climb and hike in and around the stunning scenery of Phra Nang.
For those making a day of it, hike or kayak from Railay Beach, and make sure to check out the famed Princess Cave, featuring a shocking and fantastic array of phallic shaped offerings in homage to a mythical Princess said to have made this beach her home. While the beach gets busy during the day, the crowds die down late afternoon, providing a perfect spot to set up camp for a sunset scene. Early morning is also a great time to visit.
At the bottom of the limestone cliffs lies the Princess Cave or Tham Phra Nang Nok. Dedicated to an ancient fertility goddess, the cave contains a strange combination of large phallic symbols (lingams), garlands and offerings in the hope of increased potency and prosperity. A bizarre sight for some foreign visitors, local fishermen still leave offerings even though it became a local tourist attraction.
A second cave – right next to the original – is also used for offerings and prayers; it contains the same kind of items as the original cave. Adventurous explorers can also find a cave at the western end of the beach: accessible with the help of ropes, it is not a too challenging hike, and the reward is a fantastic view to the Andaman Sea and the islands lying off the coast.
