Hin Ta Hin Yai

Rude rocks

No pic at the moment -- Sorry!

What we say: 2 stars

Just south of Lamai Beach, one of Samui's natural wonders can be found.

Hin-Ta and Hin-Yai, called Grandfather and Grandmother rock respectively, have been naturally formed by the elements to resemble male and female genitalia, and are sometimes referred to as the 'rude rocks'.

This is a popular tourist location for photo opps, as well as being popular with local Thais on the weekends. The road leading to the sights is lined with some good gift shops and street food.

This is one of the few places to buy garamear, Samui's own coconut candy, a strangely textured sweet made from sticky rice, coconut and palm sugar. Stands also sell virgin coconut oil.

To reach the rocks, leave Lamai on the Ring Road, and travel south. The entrance to the rocks is well signposted on the left.
