* Port Duck in ''TabletopGame/TheDiscworldRolePlayingGame'' is the Sto Plains/Agatean settlement on the Brown Islands, and is full of sailors who definitely aren't pirates. Confusing things, the parts the Agatean tourists see are also full of people who ''really'' aren't pirates but insist they ''are'', giving them all the excitement of drinking in a pirate tavern without actually being in any danger.

Itís a parody of the historical Port Royal, in the Caribbean, with an added dose of modern-day Hong Kong (and maybe a dash of Disneyland).

* The town of Raguza in ''Literature/{{Brotherband}}'' is a town full of and run by pirates, making it a useful spot to duck from the law, or team up with other pirates to launch a mass attack on targets too strongly defended for just one ship to manage. It's run by PragmaticVillainy-for example, if anyone starts a fight, for any reason, they're turfed out. The prices are also not too bad-trying to cheat people with lots of blades and short tempers is not the best idea. Docking fees are a percentage of whatever cargo the ship is carrying. The Herons end up there in Book 3, chasing Zavac, and pass by in Book 7.

* ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'': Tortuga, Singapore and Shipwreck Cove. Jack tells his crew to be careful about the latter as it's apparently a MeaningfulName. The Tortuga of the film is still somewhat cleaned up and [[{{Disneyfication}} Disney-fied]], compared to how you'd expect it to be in real life; women can walk safely around without any fears of being raped, for example. Considering that a lot of the pirates have no qualms about murder ( [[PiratesWhoDontDoAnything at least in theory]]), that there are much more men than women everywhere in the film, and how most pirates spend a long time in boats without women, you'd expect that even pretty young men wouldn't be safe, let alone Elizabeth Swann.

* Melee Island in the ''VideoGame/MonkeyIsland'' series.

* Melee Island in the The ''VideoGame/MonkeyIsland'' series.series loves to parody the Booty Bay version with every town in every game. The town on Melee Island in ''Secret'' would be if all the pirates weren't too afraid to leave because of [=LeChuck=], the town on Scabb Island in ''Revenge'' would be if all the pirates weren't too afraid to leave because of Largo [=LaGrande=] (and it's implied everyone is just lazy anyway), Puerto Pollo in ''Curse'' is a Booty Bay retirement community, and Melee again in ''Escape'' is until it's turned into a tourist trap. The only town to play it straight is (appropriately) Booty Island in ''Revenge''.
