Partly depends on what sorts of things would you like to get out and see/do, but you have good bus connections.

Current bus timetables here (check again nearer your time of travel, as they may change)

So, you might want to google Hersonissos (a large resort), Heraklion (coastal city with plenty to offer for a visit), The Palaces of Malia (bus stops right by the gates) and Knossos, Agios Nikalaos

I don't know if this might interest you too as an introduction to the area, and a different way to see a bit of scenery, mountain village etc. if you don't have a car

I'd personally recommend heading up into the mountains towards Krassi, fantastic little village.

Also they can get the bus towards Hersonnisos to Star Beach - http://starbeach.tv/
