Nea Koroni is between Koroni and Petalidi, 44 kilometres south of Kalamata. It has about 400 permanent residents. The old name of the village was Kandianika. It stands out for its unique urban plan, where all roads lead to the square. Visitors can see the Church of the Nativity of the Theotokos (Virgin Mary) in the village's central square. Every year, on September 8th, the temple celebrates while a multi-day fair is held.
According to scholars, the ancient Polichni of the Colonides is located on a small hill outside Nea Koroni, which, in modern times, bears the name Stylianopoulos.
