Built with a focus on familiarity, Manalapan is a rare gem of a town in Palm Beach County that is small, cozy, and to some, underdeveloped. Throughout the majority of the year, there are about 300-350 residents in Manalapan, and in the winter months that number shoots up to about 500 with vacationing snowbirds. While the commercial development in Manalapan is low, some luxurious additions are present, such as the La Coquille Club and the Ritz-Carlton Hotel Manalapan hotels.We call it The Good Greek way to unwind.

At La Coquille Club, Manalapan residents can take advantage of the Manalapan weather with a round of tennis, spend the day on a private stretch of beach, or relax at the club’s pool and whirlpool area. Residents are a priority to the club and the hotel/club is renowned as one of the most beautiful oceanfront locations in the world. Manalapan is listed as one of the best places to live in the country, with a 10 percent unemployment rate and an average commute of 30 minutes, many professionals who work in West Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens, and other nearby towns commute from Manalapan.
