These are not worth visiting! Someone got drunk and decided a rock was vaguely phallic…
‘Grandmother’ was behind a rope so couldn’t see
Weather and shops were nice.

It was a great experience to visit Hinta Hinyai in Koh samui which surrounded by the sea and the rocks and also has many shops to buy souvenirs.

We didn’t really know quite what to expect but this was a stop on a tour we did. The ‘grandpa’ and ‘grandma’ names insinuate that this is going to be something wholesome, yet it’s actually just phallic rocks in the shape of female & male genitalia, which was a bit strange, and the sea was too high to see ‘grandma’ anyway. Putting that to one side, the sea looked nice & there were lots of small snack & souvenir stands- one selling the most delicious coconut icecream imaginable, in a coconut shell decorated with orchids, for a mere 50bht. Unless you’re into phallic shaped rocks, skip those & just go for the ice cream!

This was an incredible place to visit, the water is absolutely stunning here. This place is free to visit, with lots of small cafes and souvenir shops within the area. If you're in Ko Samui, please make sure this is part of your to do list.

Recommend to go if person is staying close to Lamai Beach, nice to walk at free time. Be careful with kids. There is a toilet at parking, ask shop sellers for the key ;)

As a parent, I understand the importance of finding unique and educational experiences for my family while on vacation. That's why I highly recommend a visit to Hin Ta (Grandfather) and Hin Ya (Grandmother Rocks) during your trip to Koh Samui. This natural wonder is not only fascinating from a geological perspective, but also offers stunning views of the surrounding scenery. Our baby was amazed by the intricate details and textures created by the erosion process and we loved learning about the legends associated with the rocks. The nearby beach is also perfect for families, with shallow water that's great for splashing around and observing marine life. Although the rock formations themselves may not be suitable for very young children, the beach and nearby areas provide plenty of opportunities for family-friendly fun. Our visit to Hin Yai was a highlight of our trip to Koh Samui and I would definitely recommend it to other families looking for a positive and memorable experience.

As with most Samui attractions there are no road signs ! You will need Google maps. A bit ho hum, a 15 minute visit will do it. Cheap little shops in the small village.

The rocks themselves are very vaguely shaped as human genitals if you look at them from the right place.

The beach is very nice and there's a cool little cafe playing music.

Other than that, the souvineer places and the food and drink are all over priced there for tourists.

It's worth a half hour visit to have a look, but it's really just something to see if you are driving past.

Enjoyable visit about local legend with a few rock formations. One, a phallic rock represents grandpa and the other grandma. At least go and enjoy the candies sold nearby!
