Its a rock on the side of the road - kids may like it for 2 minutes if they are really bored! - Go if you have 2 minutes to spare!

It looks as live animal just changed to stone. But I don not know if African or Indian. Good short stop on the way to Castelsardo.

Looks a bit like an elephant and has the ubiquitous trinket seller next to it. Takes 5 minutes to view and take the amusing elephant trunk on head photo

Its located quite close to Castlesardo on a hill overlooking a long valley. The rock was shaped by the wind to give it the distinctive elephant look. Worth stopping if you are passing. You will need a car to get there and it can get busy at peak times.

The elephant rock is a really nice natural phenomenon which is really worth a 5 minutes drive from Castelsardo. At night it is beautifully enlightened and seems even more surreal.

It is an interesting geological (?) phenomenon like there are more on the Island, but unless you are enormously interested, you should not change travel routes to see it?

Visit only if you pass by there, take a photo and continue your trip. It's not a lovely place to spent too much time.

Interesting rock formation and of course you can expect tourist to go there. Expect to stand in line to get a picture of it.

The rock is right on the side of the road and quite interesting to see. Since it's quite close and takes about 10 minutes to stop, see and take a picture, it's a must see if you're on your way to/from Castelsardo.

I have been there many times, and each time is a great experience. It really looks like an elephant! Don't miss it!
