Puntland is a region in northeastern Somalia. It was recently declared an autonomous state, but does not desire complete independence from the failed state of Somalia.
Puntland is relatively peaceful compared to other regions of Somalia, with its own government and public services; however, that's not saying much and it's best to hire a local police unit for the day.
The flight from Dubai on Jubba Airways takes 2-3 hours. You could continue from Bosaaso to various other cities including Garowe, Galkacyo and Laascaanood.
Somalia has the longest coast in Africa, and Puntland possesses over a third of that with 1,300km. Its beaches are largely untouched.
