Nice to have seen how wind, sun and rain can create such creations.
It's only a few kilometers from by car from Castelsardo.

Nice drive close to Castelsardo to view this natural wonder. Go early in the morning as not too many tourists around to get the perfect picture with your loved ones.

We pass by with the car. we stopped to have a look and then we continue our trip. Yes it looks like an elephant but is nothing special. Not sure if it's worth to stop

We loved it, it was easily accessible and exactly like in the pictures we had seen.
A landmark not to miss that even our picky teens enjoyed.

when I first came to the Elephant Rock, I could hardly believe my eyes: this nature- shaped rock is righ beside the street overlooking the wide valleys. Our ancesters surely believed in its special "magic" and therefor placed some "Domus de Janas" (ancient graves of the historic Sardinian popolation) into it.
My advice: DON'T FORGET YOUR CAMERA and of course make a shot of yourself, "riding" the elephant . :-)
As long as you are there, also don'T miss the NURAGHE L'ENI, that you can see just below the rock. I always love to crawl into it, even acheived to move up the very narrow way up until achieving the top.
It's worth the effort.
Advice: Take a torch with you, otherwise it's really dark and a little "spooky" inside. ;-)
When you move inside, and illuminate the "hall", you will see the amazing way of the special technique how they built this over 3000 year- old Nurgahe.
Incredible.

Any visit to Castelsardo or nearby must include the 'Elephant' but be sure to go with a guide or someone local who knows the fascinating history behind the natural history.

It is a bit gimmicky but I guess where will you come across this in the world!!!! Remarkable resemblance when viewed at the right angles .... Not hard to get to - it is off season on our visit so there was hardly anyone about at all - we snapped a few photos and we were off to the next town .... we were at the site only 10 mins max ....
