Manalapan has a unique list of residents from Billy Joel and Yanni, to defense lawyer, F. Lee Bailey and the founder of The National Enquirer, Generoso Pope, Jr. This small beachside community has a population of just over 300 and an annual per-capita income around $145,000. This small town is one of the few that has been able to push back successfully against large-scale developers looking to take advantage of Manalapan’s prime real estate and beautiful scenery. The town is situated close to South Beach, and along the intracoastal waterway. Manalapan shares part of Hypoluxo island with the neighboring town of Lantana. While the Lantana Beach is popularly known as the Boynton inlet, it is the southern tip of the island, in Manalapan that is truly the gem. Manalapan is secluded and quiet, the perfect place for the wealthy to stroll without the rush of the bustling city ruining their relaxation.
