    The name of this place is Seytan Sofrasi and the meaning is The Banquet of the Devil ..It looks like arolling stones song )))
    Its situate in the hill of sarmisakli beach and you can watch from the top Ayvalik,Alibey ( cunda) and the beaches of Sarmisakli.
    There is huge footprint on the top and they believe that this is the foot print of the devil .But its difficult to understand why they throw money to the hole of the footprint of the devil.I ve been here many many times but I ve never have the chance to meet the devil or eat something with him .
    Its a wonderful place to watch he sundown and unfortunatel its crowded nowadays ...
