Island paradise backdropped by the Atlantic Ocean


Welcome to Manalapan

Tiny, secluded, and tucked halfway between Palm Beach and Delray Beach, Manapalan is home to some of Florida’s finest properties. An ultra-luxurious oasis with a distinct sense of privacy, this beachside town settled along the Intracoastal Waterway is nearly entirely surrounded by water and has become a choice destination for those craving year-round summer fun on a sun-splashed island.

Manalapan was incorporated in 1931 by Harold Stirling Vanderbilt, attracting famous guests and residents over the years with its quiet attitude and peaceful vibes. Locals converge for social gatherings at La Coquille Club, an exclusive hangout spot with incredible amenities for members, including an oceanfront pool, fitness center, and private clubhouse with decadent dining rooms. Ardent resistance to extensive development has helped Manalapan maintain its natural allure and tranquility, luring locals to a lifestyle of exciting outdoor activities with quick access to the beach and the Atlantic Ocean. Magnificent waterfront estates and idyllic luxury homes sprawl across the community, offering homeowners enviable seclusion and unmatched quality of life.

Local Lifestyle

Manalapan flourishes quietly, away from the frenzy of metropolitan Miami, but that’s not to say residents are deprived of access to some of the best things South Florida has to offer. A central location to both Palm Beach and Delray Beach has placed the barrier island near some of the best shopping, attractions, and entertainment.

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

Plaza del Mar is Manalapan’s most popular shopping center, located across from the Eau Palm Beach Resort and boasting a cluster of fine restaurants, charming shops, services, and chic boutiques in a courtyard setting. Browse outfits at Jeannie’s Ocean Boutique or visit Jewelry Artisans for custom necklaces, bracelets, and rings made with rare gemstones and one-of-a-kind designs.

For food, Thaikyo Asian Cuisine is a must-stop. This premiere Manalapan restaurant offers a yummy sushi bar, pad thai, and tempura dishes served with wine. Grab ice cream to go at The Ice Cream Club, or pop into the airy John G’s Restaurant for a taste of yummy fish and chips, almond french toast, or seafood platter paired with your choice beverage. Be sure not to miss out on private first-class dining at the members-only La Coquille Club, bringing guests yummy refined plates served with the finest wine.

Things to Do

The amenities at the exclusive oceanfront La Coquille Club no doubt encourage an active lifestyle for residents of Manalapan. Featuring pools, cabanas, har-tru clay tennis courts, and a fitness center among others. You can play a tennis match against members of your family or gaze out at the stunning ocean as you lounge under a shady cabana, before pampering yourself with a holistic spa session at the award-winning spa featuring jacuzzis, saunas, and a bath lounge. Enjoy a round of golf on the 18-hole golf course at The Preserve at Ironhorse or join the book club at Turner Moore Memorial Library and treat yourself to great monthly reads.
