About Phraya Nakhon Cave

Two extremely large caverns which catch sunlight through the ceiling openings and where a small Royal pavilion was built underneath.

It is just over a 30 minute trek uphill to the steps that lead down to the cave so it advisable to take a bottle of water and appropriate footwear, and would not be a recommended hike for the very elderly/young, those of ill-health or unsteady on their feet; The path up is sheltered by flora but can be quite hot/humid depending on the weather and there are some rocks underfoot which can be slippery if wet or if not wearing the right type of shoe.

Features

  • Amazing natural caverns, inside a national park.
  • Seaside location by a white sand beach.
  • Abundant wildlife and flora, with many species of birds and also monkeys.

Amenities

  • Boat ride around the peninsular to the beach and the base of the trail to the cave
  • Restaurants

Price

  • ฿200 to enter the national park itself - if already holding a ticket then the cave is no extra cost
  • Optional boat ride will cost a fee (which saves a walk around the cliffs)

Notes

Good footwear is helpful to get up to the cave (as noted above, not a climb for those not fully mobile).

Water should be taken as it can be very hot/humid despite the trail being undercover from the forest canopy

Mosquito spray/cream would be useful as there can be a large number of mosquitos about depending on rainfall or the time.
