About Merritt Island, Florida

Seeing the thriving community of Merritt Island today, with its huge assortment of shops, restaurants and businesses and population of nearly 44,000, it is hard to believe that its initial economy was based on cattle, pineapple, sugar cane and citrus.


Merritt Island has some of the most beautiful estates in Brevard County, some spanning from Indian River to Banana River, and meld into stunning reasonably priced boating communities.  A number of areas in Merritt Island still retain their natural beauty and remain unchanged. Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge is one such place. Approximately one-half of the refuge's 140,000 acres consists of brackish estuaries and marshes. The remaining lands consist of coastal dunes, scrub oaks, pine forests and flatwoods, and palm and oak hammocks.


In common with most of Brevard County, the favorable climate promotes outdoor recreation of all kinds. Merritt Island offers plentiful opportunities to enjoy the Florida sunshine, with boat ramps, golf, tennis courts, and water sports plus a diverse selection of distinct parks.
