Merritt Island is a census-designated place (CDP) in Brevard County, Florida, United States, located on the eastern Floridian coast, along the Atlantic Ocean. Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge and NASA's John F.Kennedy Space Center are located on the northern part of Merritt Island.
In the CDP, the population was spread out with 21.8% under the age of 18, 6.1% from 18 to 24, 26.1% from 25 to 44, 26.2% from 45 to 64, and 19.8% of 65 or older. With the lack of a municipal government, Merritt Island is left to the administrative care of the local county government, and potable water (where available) are handled by the neighboring city of Cocoa.
Construction of a barge canal to the Intracoastal Waterway from the Atlantic Ocean (for power plant oil shipments) cut off the northern half of the island for many years.
To this day, the northern portion of the island remains slightly less developed, with a few areas remaining as cattle pasture or citrus land.
The population density was 2,044.6 people per square mile (789.5/km²).
There were 15,813 housing units at an average density of 895.9 per square mile (345.9/km²).
