Situated south of Palm Beach and adjacent to Lantana, the upscale beach community of Manalapan, Florida offers residents stunning views and easy access to a seemingly endless supply of water-based activities. Surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, Lake Worth Lagoon (the Intracoastal) and the Boynton Inlet, the low-density community provides residents with an unsurpassed level of serenity and solitude. The Indian word “Manalapan” translates to mean “good bread.” When President Benjamin Harrison first granted a homestead in the area to Georg H.K. Carter in 1889, the town had yet to be named. It wasn’t until it was incorporated in 1931 by Commodore Harold Vanderbilt that it was named the “Town of Manalapan.” Today, the community continues to be unique in that the area is comprised of two separate geographical configurations. One portion, which is situated between Lantana Public Beach and the South Lake Worth Inlet, is commonly referred to as Boynton Inlet. The other portion, which is far more secluded and offers less real estate, is found on the southern one-third of Hypoluxo Island.
