We made a quick stop on our way from Castelsardo to La Maddalena. It was surrounded by photo seekers, and one adventurous man who decided he was going to “ride” it.

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

It’s a brilliant sight but it’s only worth a short stop - a few minutes for photos and then move on. There’s nice views around and it’s not far from Castelsardo.

Really nice to see, the elephant rock. How nature shaped the rock. Stop to take some photos and that"s it.

Worth a look if in the area, not sure I would make special effort to visit though as not much else in the area. We stayed at Castelsardo so was maybe 15min drive away.

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.
