Kanari beach, also known as Psaropoula Beach, along with Miaouli beach, form together a vast, broad beach that is partially pebbly and partly sandy. It is located in the center of Rhodes City, and one may consider it to be the sibling of Elli Beach, since the two beaches are divided only by the island's tip, and are in fact an extension of each other on opposite sides of the island. It begins just behind the Aquarium and continues down the Kanari coast, connecting to Kanari Beach, which is really an extension of this beach as well.

It is frequently windy and wavy due to its location on the west side of the island. It should also be noted that in some places the seabed drops quite steeply, which does not make this a beach necessarily suitable for young children. The distance from from the port is 1.5 kilometers, 12 kilometers from the airport, and 10 minutes from the city center.

Sunbeds, umbrellas, canteens, free showers, and parking spots are available at the beach. Right on the street that lies above the beach one can find many fine restaurants and cafeterias, which also makes it suitable if you are looking for a beach that combines something of the cosmopolitan. Those restaurants are also visited by many locals, which also speaks for the quality of offered services and food.

Due to its easy access by foot, it attracts a large number of people each day, both tourists from surrounding hotels and residents. There's also bus stop nearby, and parking should also be relatively easy to find.

Rhodes’ miniature horse, or Rhodian Pony, is an endangered horse species found on the island of Rhodes in Greece. Efforts to save the breed began in 2001 by the "Phaethon" association, which succeeded in collecting and stabling the little horses, ensuring their survival, while sensitizing the local community to their plight. Though they are also known as Rhodian ponies they do not have typical pony traits, apart from their small size.
