Traditionally known as the tomb of Nestor' son, Thrasymedes, it wasn't excavated till the mid-twentieth century, when it was discovered that his tomb supplanted a lot of earlier ones dating back to circa 6,000 years ago.
Today, though redolent with history, it lies somewhat neglected and thick with weeds, but then, this part of Greece has so many interesting and similar sites, I'm afraid it's not surprising - especially when the country is in such financial straits.
Still, it's one hell of a view from there, overlooking Voidokilia Bay, Gialova and even Pylos in the distance.
Worth the easy climb up the sandy slope on your right (after the parked cars) as you're looking at the big bay of Voidokilia in front of you.

Ruined tomb

The primary reason for visiting this site, I would say, is for the views across the Voidokilia bay, as the tomb itself is not very spectacular at all. It is fenced off (although many of the fences were damaged allowing entrance to the tomb area) and really just a pile of rocks that have either been damaged by looters or natural events over the years. There is very little to see. That said, the views from here over the bay are good; it being pretty much level with Nestor's cave at the opposite side of the lagoon.
