Île de Mogador is just off the coast and is a falcon sanctuary, as well as being the famous Purple Isles talked about in the history of this place. You can admire the falcons from a distance with binoculars if you like, but it's possible to go out and see them for yourself by arranging a free permit with the port office and hiring a boat and captain.
