It is a delightful location that blends a cosmopolitan lifestyle with a traditional setting with perfection offering a peaceful or adventurous existence for a growing population of expatriates. The country boasts a dazzling array of topographical features ranging from warm azure waters teeming with dolphins and turtles, wonderfully sandy beaches and beautifully carved rocky coastlines to a very varied interior of dune seas, precipitous mountains and green lush valleys. Life is what you make it and there is so much to do from exploring the cultural heritage and traditions to joining any number of expatriate social and sporting groups.
