It's nice place to see it . Look like really elephant. But there it's any place to park car and take a few pictures.

Great to go and experience if your in the area, dont plan your day around it though as it will only take 20 mins or so of viewing, worth waiting for a quiet time to take pics as sometimes coach loads turn up, if so...More

Worth the 2 km drive off the main highway, this is a weird lava outcrop that looks like a darn elephant. A nice stop with beautiful views of the countryside. And there is a guy selling handmade knives right there, if you're interested.

We stopped to look at the elephant rock. What an amazing site. It is found on a busy road so need to be careful when taking photos.

Ok, the Rock really looks like an elephant... but that's it, nothing else. Difficult to understand why this is rated as first attraction point next to Castelsardo... It is just fun, and a good souvenir picture. But the visit doesn't worth more than 5 minutes.

You'll come across this literally right by the side of the road. Other than the fact it does look like an elephant, he rock was carved out and still has chambers believed to have been used as a tomb.

Beautiful. Worth seeing. Very close to the main road anyway. But come early morning or you wont be able to photograph for people.
