Considered the most beautiful beach on the Peninsula, this lovely beach is crowded with tourists for the most part. Most of the land behind the sand is a private resort. Here you'll find the Princess Cave with its altar; climbing is forbidden in the cave. There is some bouldering along the back wall. Most of the available non-restricted climbing is down at the other end of the beach behind the jungle foliage, just beyond the Princess Cave in a canyon or across the water at Happy Island .
Great for sunbathing, people watching, shopping and swimming. The jungle trail to the Hidden Lagoon is along the concrete path to Phra Nang Beach near the 2nd covered bench area.
Walk towards the Muay Thai/1-2-3 areas, and before you get there, you'll find a concrete path going right around the resort next to the cliff face. Walk down this path, dodging souvenir hawkers, and you'll come to a concrete patio with a beach in front of it.

Find the feet, step left over the chasm, and start working up towards the next bolt. By the time you clip your third bolt, it eases up considerably and you get to just cruise up and take in the view: the red walls, gr...[more] Browse More Classics in International
