Merritt Island

Merritt Island is a peaceful and picturesque peninsula on the eastern coast of Florida. Home to around 34,000 people, the island provides year-round sunshine, countless recreational opportunities, and the best of coastal living.

Merritt Island is conveniently located between the Indian River and Sykes Creek, providing accessibility to the nearby communities of Cape Canaveral, Cocoa, Titusville, and Melbourne.

Today, Merritt Island remains one of the most ideal places to live, with fantastic restaurants, excellent schools, indoor and outdoor recreational activities, and the most welcoming community.
