Me, my wife and our 8 year old are planning on a holiday to crete in August but are unsure where to go. We are looking for somewhere with nice restaurants and bars, things for kids to do in the day, sandy beaches (no pebbles), not to busy and not to quiet and definately no 18-30 scene, just nice and relaxing but not boring. We went to Pefkos in Rhodes last year and that was perfect.
If anyone has any suggestions please let me know.
Perhaps a bit quiet though for the kids?
Alternatively, Georgioupolis (north coast, between Chania and Rethymnon) could be a good base. It's a good long beach

Star Beach has a small safe water park for the kids, bigger slides for the older end as well and a sandy beach.
You are central on the island with a good bus service to Stalis or Heraklion. There's also a Water City water park which isn't too far.
Knossos, well worth a visit and plenty of boat and coach trips from the area.
I might just go back now that my jollies have been blown out of the water.
Enjoy wherever you finish up.
