If you get a chance the day trip to the Atlas Mountains (about 2 hours away) is great. Also there is a very interesting fishing town called Essaouira on the Atlantic coast which you can get to by bus (including a nice one called supertours I think) or organised trip. They have expanses of beach there, although it can be a bit windy. takes about 3 hours each way from Marrakech. You can stay a few days there though.

The strangest thing I did in Marrakech was after giving a waiter a tip, early the next day he offered to show me the old city on the back of his bike. A hair raising trip through the narrow streets followed, past no entry signs, giant holes and gasps of shock from fellow tourists. What a morning!
