2. Get up early
Something you must do is get up for sunrise and enjoy the colourful horizon at Phranang Cave Beach. You will mostly be alone on the beach – alone swimming in the turquoise clear water.
This beach is famous for the huge mountains in the middle of the sea close to the coast. To go with them is the legend of Phranang (Princess) Cave, an ancient Goddess of fertility and prosperity. Therefore you will face an impressive number of phallic images decorated with garlands.
