Presentation

Located by the sea, just a little further Wat Ao Noi, Khan Kradai Cave is better known as Wat Ao Noi Cave or Tham Phra Non (cave of the reclining Buddha). The name refers to the biggest cave which is accessed by an ascent of a hundred steps and which houses a reclining Buddha image in each of its first two chambers. The second chamber also houses rows of sitting Buddhas.

Fom the beach, after the first steps, you will see on your left a small staircase decorated with shells, especially oyster shells and at its top you will see two halls on stilts. One on the left, also decorated almost exclusively with oyster shell, and another more "basic". At the back, a small cave welcomes you with an alignment of Buddha. The climb to the big cave with the reclining Buddha images will be right in front of you via the staircase that goes up to the sea.

Practical information about Khan Kra Dai Cave

This visit is part of a nice little tour to Ao Noï that I recommend you to do by your own by bicyle (there are rental shops in town in the seafront street) and take the road that goes from Khao Chong Krajok mount Prachuap Khiri Khan to the cave You will cycle along the sea for a good part of the journey that is in total about 8 km. There is also a cycling path that runs along the beach on the first half of the route.
