South coast resort/ village

Hi all, we are flying to Heraklion next June and would like to ask, in your opinion which would be the best south coast resort to base ourselves. We like sandy beaches, not too busy, but tavernas and local shops needed and charm, would like to incorporate the matala beach festival in our stay and are happy to drive. We have stayed in makrigialos in the past so we are looking for elsewhere xx thanks karen and tony x

We visit for a day most year, most recently August 2013.

Galini is very picturesque, but the beach is not great and the town lacks the buzz it had 20 or 30 years ago.
