Resort with harbour and sandy beach?

Looking for a family hol next sept in the Greek islands. Thinking maybe Crete. We like an authentic resort with a harbour and sandy beach.

Can anyone recommend a resort in Crete? We have previously enjoyed kassiopi/San Stefanos in Corfu and Skala in Kefalonia if that helps!

Quite like the look of Ithaca as well if anyone's been to both!

Thanks

Think Elounda would suit you nice beach and harbour good places to eat and you can do the boat trip over to Spinalonga Hope this is of some help

Elounda would be fine, and you could also consider any of the following:

Rethymnon - a busy town with a lovely harbour and miles of beach

Georgioupolis - fly to Chania, lovely village square with a big beach, boats moored up on the small river.

Bali, in between Rethymnon and Heraklion, several small coves.

Agios Nikolaos has a very famous harbour/lake, and although it isn't renowned for its beaches, it does have some.

Rethymnon and Ag. Nikolaos are also working ports where large ships dock.
