Takerkoust Lake

With its deep blue waters set against a backdrop of sweeping desert plains and the distant Atlas Mountains, it’s easy to understand the appeal of Takerkoust Lake and it’s a world away from the chaotic souks and busy medinas of nearby Marrakech. A manmade dam built by the French in the late 1920s to provide water and electricity for Marrakech, Takerkoust is now an important recreational area, drawing a stream of both locals and tourists during the summer months. 

Swimming is not permitted at the lake (although many locals still do), but water sports like jet skiing, wake-boarding and kayaking have become popular pastimes, and many visitors bring a picnic to enjoy along the lakefront. The real highlight is the dramatic view over the surrounding desert and mountains, and the lakeside offers an ideal backdrop to walking, cycling or quad biking tours, as well as horseback or camel riding excursions.
