Hin Ta and Hin Yai are some fascinating rock formations on the south coast, which have been a source of mirth and wonder on the island since they were discovered by the locals many years ago.

The Grandfather and Grandmother Rock formations are referred to locally as Hin Ta and Hin Yai. Located in the southern part of Ko Samui Island, the rock formations distinguishing features as bestowed up by island locals it that they resemble male and female genitalia. Overriding this whimsical inference is the folkloric tale of love and tragedy that is used to explain the origin of the rocks. The shoreline is too rocky to swim in but the crystal clear waters makes for some alluring views and a great place to dip your toes in and refresh yourself from the midday heat. As one of the more popular attractions, the rocks will be included in many tours and easily recognizable by any taxi driver.

Basically, these are interesting rock formations that looks like female and male genitals. Locals have seen a potential for tourists and made this place one of the "must-see" places. To me, its worth visiting but nothing too much interesting.

Di rocce così se ne vedono gran poche! Una gita singolare e particolare che vi consiglio assolutamente è quella alle spettacolari conformazioni rocciose di Hin Ta e Hin Yai, meglio conosciute con il nome di Grandfather and Grandmother Rock. Uno scherzo di natura che vi farà tanto sorridere visto che nella zona di Lamai Beach, proprio alla fine della lunga spiaggia, si trovano queste due rocce che sembrano imitare (alla perfezione) gli organi sessuali maschili e femminili (quello di nonno e di nonna per l'appunto!). Vento, acqua e tempo hanno plasmato così un'attrazione unica!
