Away from Lamai Centre on the beach there are two famous granite rocks-better known as Grandmother and Grandfather rocks and shaped like female and male genitalia. A love story of a young man and woman ending their life together during a big storm and the symbol of their love turning the granite rocks into these shapes. These rocks are very popular to visit and the only one shaped like this in the world.
