As of the United States 2000 Census, the borough had a total population of 423. Mantoloking is the the wealthiest community in the state of New Jersey and is ranked as the 15th highest-income place in the United States.

Mantoloking is a Jersey Shore community situated on the Barnegat Peninsula, a long, narrow barrier peninsula that separates Barnegat Bay from the Atlantic Ocean. The town is linked to the New Jersey-mainland via the Mantoloking Bridge, spanning Barnegat Bay between Mantoloking and Brick Township. Mantoloking is home to the Olympic-champion producing Mantoloking Yacht Club. Many houses in Mantoloking are of the Shingle Style and seashore colonial designs with cedar shakes and white trim; popular in places like Cape Cod, Nantucket, Martha's Vineyard and Newport. In fact, a few old "summer cottages" in Mantoloking were designed by world-renowned architect Stanford White of McKim, Mead and White fame. Together with Bay Head to the north, Mantoloking is considered part of the Jersey Shore's "Gold Coast".

The name Mantoloking is derived from the language of the Lenni Lenape Indians who once inhabited New Jersey. Various meanings have been attributed to the word Mantoloking including "frog ground", "sandy place", and "land of beautiful sunsets".
