Koiláda is a quiet fishing village that lately has been developed for two reasons: First, it attracts yachts and tourists because of its shelter, natural beauty and good fish taverns. Second, it attracts all sorts of vessels due to the excellent boatyards located there. Professionals of the sea arrive here from everywhere, even the distant Monemvasiá.
If you follow the coastal road that circles the bay, towards the north, you will reach the end of the track road on the north side of the bay. Then walk a little more along the coast (500m, there is no path) and you will arrive at the famous cave Frágthi, used from the Paleolithic Man up until the Neolithic Man (there is a path leading at the entrance of the cave, but it starts from the other side, the beach of Foúrnoi). The use of the cave stopped around 2000 BC, when a large part of its roof fell.
Inside this cave, the oldest complete human skeleton in Greece was found, belonging to a young man of 25 years old, 1.54m in height, who died around 8000 BC. This cave is the proof that our Hellenic ancestors, from being hunters and gatherers, became cultivators and stock breeders. Deep inside the first hall of the cave is a beautiful small pond, which is lit by the outside light. Unfortunately, there is no access to the deeper halls of the cave, due to the large boulders that fell from the roof.
