Phra Nanag Beach Hotels

An idyllic Thai cliché of white sand, warm teal water, and grand limestone cliffs fringed with lush foliage, it’s not surprising Phra Nang Beach has featured on many a ‘best beach’ list. Not to be confused with the livelier Ao Phra Nang Beach in the resort of Ao Nang, this slice of paradise sits secluded on the Railay peninsula – home to some of the finest scenery in the Krabi Province. Alongside swimming and sunbathing, it’s a haven for livelier pursuits, including kayaking, snorkelling, and top-notch rock climbing.

Things to see

Whilst it offers a handful of services, such as refreshments and massages, Phra Nang Beach is among the most peaceful beaches in the province - partly because the Railay peninsula is only accessible by boat. If you’re staying more inland however, it’s possible to take a long-tail boat ride here, making it an ideal bolthole when you need a little more tranquillity.

On the edge of the beach, tucked into a small cave, you’ll find Phra Nang Shrine. Filled with smoky incense, it’s dedicated to the princess goddess Phra Nang, who according to legend was killed in a shipwreck. Today local boaters and fishermen often make offerings in the form of phallus-shaped carvings, in hope that she’ll protect them at sea. Another must-see is the aptly named Diamond Cave. Situated near the east coast, within a cliff that separates peninsula from the inland, the illuminated cave features a trove of glittering stalagmites and stalactites.

Hotels in Phra Nanag Beach

The hotels in Phra Nang Beach’s surrounding area are situated in West Railay Beach. Home to a handful of luxurious lodgings, here you can live it up in a chic private villa, or experience endless pampering in a glitzy 5-star spa hotel such as Rayavadee. The majority of hotels in Phra Nang Beach’s vicinity come laden with stylish amenities, from on-site restaurants and bars overlooking the shimmering ocean, to outdoor pools and hot tubs, set within peaceful tropical grounds. If you’ve got less to spend the peninsula has no shortage of budget-friendly digs too, from cheap and cheerful full-service hotels, to thrifty traveller crash pads. Avatar Railay and Railay Viewpoint Resort are cheaper options.

Where to stay

The best hotels in Phra Nang Beach’s vicinity are situated further north, near West Railay Beach. The peninsula’s main haunt for R&R seekers, it offers its own idyllic ribbon of blonde sand, similarly flanked by towering limestone formations. Whilst it offers a handful of restaurants, shops, and beachy bars, the bulk of the area’s amenities can be found within its portfolio of luxury hotels. Here daily itineraries are filled with sunbathing, indulgent spa treatments, and evening meals overlooking the sparkling ocean. A short ‘trek’ through the jungle pathway to the east, and you’ll come to East Railay Beach – home to cheap backpacker accommodation, as well as a smoky bohemian nightlife.

How to get to Phra Nanag Beach

Krabi International Airport is the primary entry point into the region, and sits around a 15-minute drive from the town of Krabi, the province’s capital. It’s a well-connected airport, with links throughout Asia, including regular flights from major hubs such as Kuala Lumpur International and Hong Kong International – making it easy to make a connecting flight should you need one. Because Phra Nang Beach is located on the isolated Railay peninsula, the only way to get there once you’ve landed is by boat. Fortunately long-tail boats regularly depart from both Krabi town and the resort of Ao Nang, both of which are a relatively short taxi or minibus ride from the airport.
