Fantastic for promenades with family or pets. Each side of the lake is distinct and offers varying views of the mountains. Very clean as well, which can be hard to come by in Morocco.

Well organized business, we chose to do the tour at 2pm we went on 4x4 through the desert to enter the village. We got a ride on sportive and safe quads, well supervised by super friendly staff! The quad were in excellent condition (Yam Grizzly 350) we ended up by drinking tea at the lake

The lake was so beautiful, we jet ski. It was so quite and peaceful, we were the only people there. The views to the Atlas mountains were breath taking. There was a nice place with a swimming pool and refreshments. A wonderful day out.

About an hours drive from Marrakech, this lake is a great spot to have a drink and take in the spectacular views of the Atlas Mountains. The Moroccan tea here was great.

Just an hours drive from Marrakesh, this lake offers beatiful scenery with great views of the snow covered Atlas mountains. We were told we could not swim in it as the water is dirty, however they do have activites such as jet ski's available for use. There is also a cafe on the water front.

The short trip from Marrakech was nice since thereare some traditional villages on the way. After the highway, to reach the lake, we drove on a badly maintained road, along with the standard police block, which we've seen almost everywhere in Morroco, so be carefull. The end result was very rewarding, since it was a sunny, clear day and the... More
