Driving Directions

... how to find our small paradise

  • From Chania airport, follow signs to Chania centre.
  • As you exit the gates of the airport grounds, you turn right at the first intersection.
  • Follow this straight road until you reach a traffic circle.
  • At this traffic circle, you turn right (following signs for Chania).
  • At the next traffic circle you come to, turn left (going downhill) now following signs to Souda (port of Chania).
  • Continue going downhill, passing a large bowling establishment on your right hand side.
  • When you come to a set of traffic lights you should see a sign for a left turn to Souda port and a right turn to the New National Road.
  • Turn right in the direction of the New National Road. Pass a petrol station on your right hand side.
  • Take the on-ramp onto the New National Road signed for ‘Rethymno’ (you are now heading east, away from Chania centre).
  • Stay on the New Narional Road passing any exits to ‘Souda’.
  • Continue past the exits marked for “Aptera, Megala Horafia”.
  • Pass also the exit marked for “Kalami”. Note: along route, there is a small sign marked for ‘Amyrida, Plaka’ – ignore this and continue on.
  • Take the right exit signed for ‘Kalyves”.
  • Once you have taken this exit, turn left towards Kalyves.
  • Continue on this road passing an Eko garage/petrol station on your left hand side and this road then gets to a T-junction.
  • At this point you turn right (sign reads ‘Municipality of Vamos’).
  • About 50 meters on take a right towards “Alyrida, Plaka”.
  • Continue uphill – the road winds and bends and then goes down to Almyrida coastal village.
  • Once at Almyrida, take the right turn to “Plaka”.
  • Soon you will pass a Jet Oil garage/petrol station on your left.
  • Continue on this road uphill and then downhill.
  • As you enter Plaka village keep an eye out for a sign to Emerald Hotel (the sign is on your left).
  • Carefully take this left turn (cars may come from ahead and/or behind) – be careful.
  • Drive down the hill and you will see Emerald Hotel.
  • Park at the end of this road and welcome to Emerald Hotel!
