#170 of 728 in Outdoors in Marrakech
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.

  • a haven of peace... It's worth a visit, lots of paths allow to partially turn, so different points of view. Sheep, goats, possibilities of quad biking, Dromedary, paddle, canoe, Jet etc... and if the heart tell you about other beautiful landscapes, go direction Asni

  • For a very long time we know Marrakech and its surroundings, this lake is one of the relaxing points of the area I missed. Restaurant, beaches, are hospitable and of all categories. On the other hand we found this year a lot of trash (plastic bottles, cans,...) which ruined our day. What a pity!
