This bay is not as easy going at Anse Vata. Has loads of different places to eat and a nice bay but I think Anse Vata has a nicer feel to it and set up with shops for icecreams etc makes it more enjoyable. This people in 20's would enjoy more.
We stayed right at this beach and enjoyed safe swimming, shady areas to sit,outdoor showers and toilet at beach. Also plenty of eating places to choose from. Lovely views especially in early morning and evening. Lots of locals use the beach not just tourists!
