I visited Ammoudara for last time last March. The beach was quiet without chairs and loud music. You can find quiet places to swim only 5-10 minutes away from Heraklion all the time

Nice, clean water, lots of caffes, kind people, safe guards, sandy and a little bit windy. The waves are not too big. We had so much fun
