Pranang Cave is attached to the main land & is accessible from Railey Bay. Just a short walk ahead is the princess cave with a decorative spirit house. We just lay at the beach and took a short nap and had a foot massage.
This is also where you can see "Princess Cave" or Tham Phra Nang Nok in Phra Nang beach. Local fishermen believe this is the home of a mythical sea princess.
There are a few long tail boats that sell fresh fruit & shakes i.e. orange, mango, pineapple for 30 baht. They also have baguette i.e. ham, cheese, tuna & egg baguette for 60 baht and sandwich i.e ham, cheese, tuna & egg, chicken sandwich for 40 baht or pad thai, fried rice for 50 baht
Bring sunscreen or suntan and drink plenty of water. It was a fun day and we were provided pack lunch and water so nobody would get dehydrated.
Slightly busy but still beautiful. The caves provide shade in the water (good if you are already sun burnt from the day before). Lots of little fishes in the water. For us non-Europeans just to warn you people do go there and lay or walk around topless, so don't be surprised.
There's a cave located inland a bit from the East Railay beach. It'll probably only take you 30 minutes to go look at it, but it's just one more thing to do in this very small area.
There is the occasional sighting of large snakes in there so just keep your eyes pealed.
Here you'll find rock climbers practicing their bouldering skills, plus you'll get to see some amazing rock formations and outcrops.
Not far from this location was where the James Bond movie Man With The Golden Gun was filmed. Tours are available from a number of locations to take you out to the exact filming area.
If staying in Railay, the best beach is definately Pranang Beach. Perfect for swimming and sunbathing, just a bit owercrowded at times. Otherwise, beautiful. And watch out for the monkeys!
Pranang beach is really beautiful. It's the best place for swimming. Sand is fine and white like a powder. Water is so clear. You can hang aroud here .
