Trip Planner: Africa / Morocco / Marrakech-Tensift-El Haouz Region / Marrakech / Lac Lalla Takerkoust
Get away from the city bustle and relax at Lac Lalla Takerkoust, a quiet 7 km (4.3 mi) long reservoir in the Agafay Desert. The lake and its surroundings provide a tranquil spot and a popular getaway for Marrakesh residents. Created by a French-built electricity dam in the late 1920s, the lake also offers a variety of water sports, like Jet Skis and paddleboards. Swimming is officially prohibited, but many locals enjoy breaking the rule. Explore numerous hiking trails through the nearby desert, opt for a horseback ride, or fish for perch and black bass. If you get hungry, have an al fresco meal and enjoy a view of the snow-laced Atlas Mountains in the distance.

On the other hand we found this year a lot of trash (plastic bottles, cans,...) which ruined our day. What a pity!
