Welcome to Manalapan, Gulf Stream, and Hypoluxo Island
Unmatched luxury, peace, privacy, and prestige in these close-knit communities
On the easternmost edge of sunny southern Florida, the communities of Manalapan, Gulf Stream, and Hypoluxo Island are three of the state’s most luxurious, private, and prestigious places to live. Just ten miles south of Palm Beach and twenty north of Boca Raton, vast estates stretch from ocean to lake, luxurious hotels and spas offer the finest service in the world, and dream lifestyles are lived to the fullest every day of the year.
Smaller in comparison to other neighboring locales, the population of these seaside communities remains below 1,000 residents, ensuring a close-knit sense of privacy away from prying eyes and the noise you’d often find in other coastal locations. Solitude, unparalleled quality of life, and exceptional luxury experiences guarantee residents of these quiet shores enjoy great comfort and enjoyment of their everyday lives.

Residents of this peaceful stretch of the Florida shoreline enjoy otherworldly solitude and high quality of life. In an effort to prevent overcrowding and preserve the quiet aesthetic of the communities, development has been kept to a minimum over the years. Much of daily life revolves around the unmatched beauty afforded to lucky locals by their pristine location. Beach days, diving, boating, and other aquatic activities are abundant. Nearby award-winning resorts boast premier on-site dining, pools with panoramic Atlantic views, and a retreat from an already picturesque lifestyle.
Dining, Entertainment, and Shopping
A classic breakfast and brunch experience is found at John G’s Restaurant in Plaza Del Mar. Since 1973, this iconic family-friendly eatery has earned a loyal following among both locals and visitors alike for their classically perfect French toast, fish and chips, croissant sandwiches, and seafood combo plates.
Another historic site for seaside eats is the Old Key Lime House. This appropriately named lime green establishment features the largest tiki bar in South Florida, waterfront dining, and panoramic seaside views. This iconic hotspot is known for delectable just-caught seafood and, of course, a silky key lime pie piled high with inches of light, fluffy meringue.
The Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa is a Forbes Five Star-winning luxury resort situated on a private beach. Recognized by dozens of publications around the world for their unmatched service, the resort was also recognized as Florida’s top resort in the 2016 Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards.
Across the street from the luxurious, oceanfront Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa, Plaza Del Mar is a collection of vibrant boutiques, delicious restaurants, upscale services, and other important local businesses. The Plaza regularly holds a series of events throughout the year, such as live music performances, shopping affairs, and more.
Just up the shoreline, the Four Seasons Resort Palm Beach is another luxurious spot to get away from it all. An unparalleled international reputation precedes itself as guests are rewarded with top-notch service, five-star dining, a relaxing spa, poolside drink service, watercraft rentals, and so much more.
The waterfront market, taking place every Sunday, is held at Lantana Bicentennial Park, just off the Ocean Avenue Bridge. Twenty different artisan food vendors present a wide variety of local produce, fresh-caught seafood, meats, honey, baked goods, and other fine handcrafted creations. A slightly more outdoorsy shopping experience can be found at Lantana‘s Shoreline Green Market.
Things To Do
In these seaside communities, you’ll always find plenty of ways to spend your days, whether you’re relaxing at the beach, playing catch at the park, or exploring one of the local events.
