West of Puerto Plata is a relaxing stretch of gold-spun sand that doesn't usually face the tourist assault of Playa Dorada. The waters at Cofresi are nice and calm for swimming, and there's plenty of shade (you'll have your choice of umbrella, hut or trees) to set up camp under. A few restaurants flank Cofresi Beach (which is free to the public and open 24/7), and the Ocean World Adventure Park, Marina and Casino is right next door.
