Chania to Heraklion

Hi, I'm really loving your website!! I'm arriving at the Chania airport on July 25th in the morning and taking a ferry to Santorini from Heraklion on July 28th.
I know Crete is super big and wish I can stay longer but my schedule is very tight. I want to explore more of the west side of the island since I'm arriving at Chania.
What I want to do is visit Chania town, and go to some beaches. The beaches I want to visit is Elafonissi, Falassarna, and Balos beach.
Which I don't know if it's possible to visit all of them. I am not planning to rent a car at all. Do they have small ferrys that can take me from one beach to another?
If not, how are bus schedules like? I also want to visit Heraklion since I have to depart from there anyways. Maybe stay the first two nights is Chania and last night in Heraklion?
I was also thinking to do a quick stop at Rethymno on the way to Heraklion. The only problem is that I'm going to have all this luggage with me. Do they have a small storage unit or somewhere that I can rent for a few hours to store my luggages?
Where is more convenient for me to stay? So much to do in such a little time. Thank you so much!!!
