ŞEYTAN SOFRASI, AYVALIK

Seytansof

South of Ayvalik Şeytan Sofrası (Devil’s Dinner Table) is a lofty plateau (124m), originally called Çanak Tepe, to which people flock in their hundreds to watch the sun set over a spectacular view of the bay and the surrounding islands including Lesbos (Midilli). 

The municipality lays on buses to get people there and back which makes it easy for those without cars but ensures everyone arrives at the same time.

In high summer the cafes on the plateau are jampacked which milidly detracts from the sense of setting.

Why is the peak called the Devil's Dinner Table asks a sign at the site - then completely fails to offer any enlightenment!

Transport info

The local bus, timed to get passengers to the summit in time for sunset, leaves from south of Tansaş in Ayvalik. The service allows visitors a couple of hours on the plateau.
