Manalapan

Blessed with the good fortune of being located on a slender barrier island between the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway, Manalapan lies between the cities of Palm Beach and Boynton Beach in Palm Beach County, Florida. With just over 300 permanent residents, the town's population only grows to about 550 even in the busiest season, and there is very little non-residential land within its borders. The town continues to resist pressure from large-scale developers, choosing instead to continue the vision of its founders who valued a quiet residential community surrounded by the beauty of its natural environment.

The town is geographically divided into two separate areas. The portion along Highway A1A between the Lantana Public Beach and Lake Worth Inlet is better-known because the aforementioned main north-south highway is more well-traveled. The more secluded section of Manalapan occupies the southern third of Hypoluxo Island, which it shares with the town of Lantana.

Long stretches of beautiful sand beaches, warm tropical weather and protected natural vegetation form the backdrop for the secluded waterfront mansions for which Manalapan is known. Dining, shopping and cultural highlights are never far; locally, Plaza Del Mar offers upscale shops, services, restaurants and cafes, and Lantana, Boynton Beach, Lake Worth and the Palm Beaches are nearby.
