2. Sale, Morocco

Another one of the pirate havens you should check out is the ancient city of Sale, located on Morocco's Atlantic coastline. In the 17th century, Sale became the home of a band of Barbary pirates. Though they were not as widely known as Nassau's buccaneers, the Barbary pirates were definitely more fearsome. They "operated" in the Mediterranean mostly, but not only. They raided ships and coastlines throughout Europe, reaching even Iceland, and they were famous for taking prisoners to sell as slaves in North Africa.
