Beautiful sea view

A quick stop to see the rocks formations and the sea is clear. You have to pay to go up to the observation platform.

Nice place to visit on Koh Samui. Place is quite turistic, but not full. I totally recommand the coconut icecream which the locals offered just on the way to the attraction- it is delicious!

Not worth it to travel all the way out there just to see them... if you are passing by then stop to see the ocean... the rocks are not impressive at all...

You can laze on the rocks, very peaceful, Then climb up and enjoy a nice view of the adjacent beach, nice breeze. The locals charge a tiny fee to climb up to the view point. We sat around for about 20-25 min, nothing much else to do there.

Grandfather and Grandmother rocks is just like any other rocky beach but with these two rocks. We in fact had a difficult time searching for grandmother rock by ourselves. Overall spend some 10-15 minutes over here and were back. Good for clicking only two pictures.

They say Ko Samui is the classier island (though second in size) to Phuket. I think it is gorgeous! The Grandmother and Grandfather rocks are fun and very accurate rock formations amongst the stunning waters of Thailand. There is also a Great grandfather rock which I will let you guess which one it is!! Fun site!

Best seen with a local Tour guide who will point out young Grandfather and old Grandfather as well as Grandmother rocks. Accessible to most people but elderly frail or disabled guests may have some difficulties accessing grandmother rock.

Grandpa and Grandma Rocks showed remarkable resemblance to the genitals of man and woman. It is an interesting place to visit, a place which shows that Nature can be an imaginative sculptor. Our cruise ship anchored off Nathon (capital town of Ko Samui). We were transported by tender boats to the town’s jetty. We hired a taxi at the jetty... More

Busy! TBH, I didn't really get it, I know what it's supposed to represent but really..!? It's a handy to waste half an hour there but don't expect too much...

Well yeah if you are in the area go have a look it is free anyway but it is not worth paying a taxi to get there. 2 rocks in the shape of genitalia. That is it.
