Topless sunbathing is against the law.
Handshaking is the usual form of greeting and while a large number of the locals smoke this is discouraged during Ramadan together with eating.
Traditionally the locals eat with their fingers. If you wish to follow local customs please be aware that it is considered unhygienic to touch food with your left hand.
