Caves to discover

The caves below are just an idea - the best way to explore the caves of the oceans of Phuket is with John Gray Sea Canoe.

Ao Luk         
This has intricate prehistoric paintings - a real find in this part of Asia, Andaman coast of Thailand, from Phang Nga to Krabi and Trang and Satun province.

Chao Lay Cave 
Just West from Laem Sak Cape (a short trip from Laem Sak Cape of about 15 minutes) and here is a beautiful bay with limestone caves.  The caves are full of stalactites and stalagmites

Hua Galohk Nai Cave          
A large unusual cave because of the strangely shaped stalactites and stalagmites that are only 100 meters from Pi Hua Toh cave. 

Pet Cave          
Only 3 kilometres from Ao Luke Nee market.  The cave is adorned with images of the Buddha and the stone that the cave is made of which reflects light adding to the amazing beauty.  You will need to have a guide from the Tarabohk Koranii National Park

Pi Hua Toh Cave
A unique cave as it is in the mountainside and is surrounded a mangrove swamp, water and beautiful grottos - coupled with the stories of the island and what was left there by them this is an interesting day out.

Relax.  This is the home of the Kao Prah Suhn Yah Tah Rahm Meditation Center - just 2 kilometres from Au Luke.

A beautiful cave which winds back on itself (Tahm Lod Nee).  An amazing limestone tunnel with the stalagmites and stalactites - but only accessible during low tide.

This cave has stalactites and stalagmites that are said to represent Buddhist monks and multi-headed serpents.
