""Erotic rocks": Hin Ta - Hin Yai" Grandfather & Grandmother Rocks Tip by Robert_Hun

  Hin Ta & Hin Yai (ie. Grandpa & Grandma)
by Robert_Hun

Funny and undoubtedly erotic rock formations on Lamai beach. The legend says that an old couple whose ship was wrecked in the bay and their body was washed ashore to create these formations. The name ("Grandfather and Grandmother rocks") comes from this story (and probably from the shapes themselves... :-))
Actually, as on the picture, you can observe only grandpa because grandma faces the surging sea, so you cannot access this rocky shore. (I don't know how the postcard that you can see in my Travelogue was made.)

Directions: On Lamai beach (SE)
