The Grotto, one of the Rayavadee’s four restaurants, is right on Phranang Beach.
Phra Nang Beach is accessible only by long-tail boat about a 20-minute ride from Ao Nang (in Krabi Province). The velvety sand is best from May to December during low-season when you can rent a sea kayak to explore the sandstone karsts and limestone caves just offshore go snorkeling among the shallow waters coral reefs or try your hand rock climbing without competing for space.
