Sixties surf rock legends The Beach Boys will be performing at Ocean World Marina & Casino’s inaugural concert in Cofresi, Puerto Plata this Saturday, 16 December. A major boat show is also planned. Over 2,000 people, most of them movers and shakers from the Dominican business and tourism sectors as well as the government, have been invited to the event. The 100-slip Ocean World Marina is the first full-service marina on the north coast, and now fills a 300-mile gap between the Turks and Caicos Islands and Puerto Rico on the well-traveled route between Florida, the Bahamas and the Eastern Caribbean.
Ocean World’s new Casino complements the marina, with the spectacular Octopus Bar sharing the lower floor with what promises to be Puerto Plata’s first five-star restaurant. Las Vegas-type revue shows are held at the casino that features 10 tables and 60 machines. The Lighthouse Lounge at the top of the casino offers incredible views of the area.
