We went to Phra Nang beach on mid August. It is rainly season and we had rain every few hours. When we arrived at Phra Nang cave, it was 11:30AM. The time is hi tide in Ao Nang area.
There is no beach sand to Phra Nang beach. We waited for 30-40 minutes on the way to the beach. After that, we could reach Phra Nang beach. There was no people and we are only two since it was high tide and drizzle.
We spent an hour to stay there and came back to Railay beach.

When it is good weather and low tide, there are so many people. When the weather condition is bad, there is no people.

Arrived here early in the morning as not many people were here it was quite delightful. It soon filled up! Bring your own snacks as hotel only guests it would appear for restaurants!

Though it's quite a trip to get to Ao Phra Nang and come back to Ao Nang by the long-tailed boat, it's definitely worth the trouble to get there! So gorgeous and the water was crystal blue!

This is by far the best beach on the Railay peninsula and thanks to us visiting just as Thailand exits the pandemic properly there were far fewer tourists than I imagine this beach has seen in many years. As a result, this was a tranquil piece of paradise with beautiful soft sand, awesome views, pretty caves and calm water…definitely one of the finest beaches we saw in Thailand.

We came here 23 years ago so we were very interested to see it again…’
‘Wow’ is our reaction once again, it is simply beautiful, the isolation and towering rock formations hold you in awe. The sea is turquoise and blue and the swim across to the rock just off the beach 🏖 gives you another brilliant perspective of the beach and rock formations.
Make sure you walk to the other end of the beach and swim underneath the over hanging rocks if the tide is out. There are plenty of overhanging trees for shade if you want to spend the day there but get there early as all the best spots will be taken by other tourists.

I can’t recommend this enough, a must see if you are in the area, boats come here from all around.

This is the perfect place for a marriage proposal. I didn't...but you could!

We walked over from our hotel at the Avatar at around 8am. The caves on the way are super cool! When we arrived there may have been another 4 or 5 people there spread out on the long, beautiful beach. We had a romantic and amazing time swimming under the cliffs and walking down the nearly deserted beach with its mind-blowing, travel documentary-like rock formations. It was an amazing couple of hours.

Then the tour boats showed up disgorging masses of international tourists.

The population of the beach went from a handful to hundreds in about 30 minutes. It was borderline infuriating...Selfies everywhere. Then the tide came in...and poof, they were all gone as if they'd never been! Back to relaxation by 12-1pm!

A boat with a full kitchen showed up too! There are no permanent vendors allowed here. The boat sold beer, lots of food options and soft drinks and water. It was awesome! They also take back their garbage. Make sure to give it back to them and keep this paradise clean.

Bring water, waterproof footwear, sun safety stuff and a blanket to lounge on.

Be prepared to get wet on the walk back if you leave during high-tide. We were soaked to the waist. We were both stung a bit by what I presume were very small jellyfish or organisms while swimming. The stings faded quickly and most of my time in the water, (Which was a couple of times an hour) I wasn't affected.

Despite the tour boats, mild stings and soaking, this beautiful beach was a highlight from our trip and I will always remember it.

The beach has beautiful white sand and turquoise waters. It offers a great view of the nearby islands and can be easily reached by long-tail boat. There is a cave with phallic symbols at one end of the beach. Unfortunately it is very popular and at peak times the beach is full of long-tail and other boats. So you can't really swim or sunbathe on it. You can only walk on the beach and admire the great views.

Nice and beautifull beach, but swimiing zone is not so big - lots of boats.
On other hand due to size it takes more time to wait for full boat when coming back
