Unique and Unparalleled Manalapan, Florida – a barrier island of unique beauty in that two separate areas exist, and a special place to stay and play.

The town of Manalapan, Florida, resides along the Intracoastal Waterway and is comprised of two separate areas linked only by water. So if it has to do with water, this is the place to be. If you like to dive, the dive wreck of Lofthus is situated approximately 175 yards off the shore of Manalapan in the Florida Underwater Archeological Preserve. Before wrecking naturally off Manalapan in 1898, Lofthus traveled the world as a merchant ship with gun ports painted on her sides to discourage pirate attacks. Today, the wreck is located and reached in only 15-20 feet of water.
Staying waterside is easy in this small community. Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa is a breathtaking oceanfront property with three outstanding restaurants and a spa providing a tranquil and serene environment for all pampering services. Recognized as Florida’s top resort in the 2015 Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards, this a luxurious playground of top amenities and indulgent service. While there are plenty of incredible sights to see in Manalapan, you might have trouble pulling yourself away from this bustling resort. You’ll have access to tennis courts, a fitness center, water sports, private beachside cabanas and so much more.

If you’re feeling adventurous and want to get away from the resort, head across Lantana Intracoastal Bridge to JetRide Boat & Jet Ski Club. This company rents out everything from small fishing boats to wave-coasting jet skis and anything in between. Enjoy the ultimate freedom in a classy Hurricane 217 while you cruise up and down the waterway in style. Or impress your family by showing up in a Starcraft SVX series, equipped with a four-speaker stereo and a bimini top for sun protection.
