The borough of Mantoloking is a Jersey Shore community situated on the Barnegat Peninsula, also known as Barnegat Bay Island, a long, narrow barrier island that separates Barnegat Bay from the Atlantic Ocean.

Mantoloking is linked to the New Jersey mainland via the Mantoloking Bridge, linking the town with Brick Township across the Barnegat Bay. Together with Bay Head to the north, Mantoloking is considered part of the Jersey Shore's "Gold Coast". 

There are no tourist attractions here, and the beach is quiet, peaceful and lined with beautiful homes.

During Hurricane Sandy in 2012, storm surge damaged about 90% of the properties in Mantoloking with the largest damage occurring when a breach was formed between the Barnegat Bay and the Atlantic Ocean in the vicinity of Herbert Street. More than 50 homes required demolition, accounting for almost 10% of the housing units.

Students in Mantoloking attend public school in Point Pleasant Beach for kindergarten through twelfth grade as part of a sending/receiving relationship with the Point Pleasant Beach School District, together with students from Bay Head and Lavallette who attend the district's high school.
