Phra Nang beach is also known as the “Cave Beach”. It is one of Railay’s four beaches, which is a small peninsula located in the south of Thailand.

Phra Nang embodies the perfect beach with their beautiful white sand and dreamy blue sea. After relaxing under the sun, and frolicking in the sea what better way to end the day by visiting the Princess Cave where local fisherman place offerings.
Maya Bay is located in Koh Phi Phi Lee, which is the second largest island of the Phi Phi Archipelago. It is incredibly beautiful as you have a view of limestone cliffs surrounding the bay, an estimated 200 meter long beach with soft white sand, colorful coral and exotic fish. This is one of Thailand’s most visited beaches since the movie “The Beach” starring Leonardo DiCaprio began filming there. This is a perfect place to spend the day relaxing on the silky soft sand, admiring the view of the blue sea and cliffs as well as snorkeling amongst exotic fish.
