What to Expect

A quiet residential community surrounded by water, the town of Manalapan exemplifies a leisurely lifestyle. The town's geography is unique in that it consists of two separate areas divided by water. This area includes the southern part of Hypoluxo Island, with Lantana to the north, as well as the portion of land along A1A between the Lantana Public Beach and Boynton Inlet. Streamlined yachts dot the shoreline, and colorful cabanas line the beaches.

The Lifestyle

Access to La Coquille Club is one of the biggest perks of living in Manalapan. The Manalapan Town Commission incorporated this members-only club in 1988 when approving the plans for the Ritz-Carlton Hotel. Now called Eau Palm Beach Resort and Spa, services on hand for all town property owners include access to the resort’s lavish pool, whirlpool, and private cabanas.

Incorporated by Commodore Harold Vanderbilt in 1931, Manalapan boasts an illustrious history. The Commodore chose this scenic location for Villa di Venezia, a 32,000-square-foot oceanfront mansion designed by Maurice Fatio. This development set the scene for the mansions and estates that line A1A today. Vanderbilt named the new settlement after the New Jersey township of Manalapan, which means “good bread” in the native Lenape language.

The Market

Manalapan real estate includes opulent properties and magnificent oceanfront mansions. Properties offer breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean and Intracoastal Waterway. This enclave is highly coveted for the privacy its properties afford, placed on large lots with protected yacht dockage and secluded beachfront.

Point Manalapan is a highly desirable part of town. This gated neighborhood sits at the southernmost point of Hypoluxo Island, offering unbeatable security and seclusion. These sprawling Manalapan luxury homes for sale come equipped with deep-water dockage and first-class resort-style touches. Outdoor landscaping creates a tropical oasis, with natural stone patios, built-in summer kitchens, and infinity pools overlooking the ocean.

You'll Fall In Love With

Its high quality of life and natural surroundings. Only four percent of the land area in Manalapan is commercial or club property, and the Town Commission works to resist the pressures of commercial development. This allows the town to remain a low-density residential community.

Around the Block

The area’s Plaza Del Mar Shopping Center includes a Mediterranean-style courtyard setting and invites visitors to take their time visiting its selection of high-end boutiques. Fashion outlets include Chico’s and Stepping Out Shoes & Accessories.

Local artists also have an outlet to shine here. Vibrant paintings and eye-catching jewelry designs are on display at the Sheila Payne Art Gallery, and the Jewelry Artisans boutique specializes in rare gemstones.

Beyond its excellent shopping, Plaza Del Mar offers a wealth of dining options. Start your day with the award-winning breakfast at John G’s, including multiple variations of French toast. For those who love both Japanese and Thai cuisine, Thaikyo offers the best of both worlds—lemongrass-scented curries and hand-rolled sushi masterpieces create a tempting menu. Choose from homemade pizza and authentic pasta dishes at Manalapan Pizza and Italian Cuisine. Diners can enjoy gourmet hand-tossed pizzas and savory seafood risotto out on the restaurant’s patio, bedecked with twinkle lights for a romantic atmosphere. Don’t forget to cool down with a tropical mango sorbet at the Ice Cream Club.

The Eau Spa’s dining outlets include Angle Restaurant, where no attention to detail is spared in the dining room’s décor, from its velvet walls and gleaming mirrors to its underlit amber and onyx centerpiece. Head Chef Manlee Siu crafts memorable, contemporary American cuisine using only the freshest local ingredients. Temple Orange, the resort’s other dining outlet, has oversized windows and outdoor veranda dining. The Mediterranean bistro’s signature dishes include watermelon and feta salad for lunch and bouillabaisse for dinner.
