Marrakesh. Lalla Takerkoust.

A short drive from Marrakech on the road to Amizmiz is the Barrage Lalla Takerkoust dam. Constructed by the French in the 1930s to irrigate the surrounding Haouz plains and generate additional electricity for Marrakech, the dam's lake is the closest thing to a beach the city has to offer -- and it's not half bad. Along the lake's 7km-long (4 1/3-mile) shoreline are opportunities to jet- and water-ski as well as kayak -- a paddle across to the more secluded, far side of the lake can even involve a bit of turtle spotting.
