South Tropical Trail in Merritt Island
For valid reasons, South Tropical Trail boasts some of the most expensive properties of all the island communities in Florida. Considered a boater’s paradise due to the deep waters on both sides, the “river to river” properties on the southernmost tip of Merritt Island have waterfront access to both the Indian and Banana Rivers. The deep waters, particularly in the northern areas, are well suited for large vessels. Unique to the trail is some of the lushest soil which allows for residents to grow mango, avocado, lychee nut and citrus trees among — other tropical fruits — in their backyards. Further north, between Mather’s Bridge and Pineda Causeway, you’ll find some of the most scenic homes for sale on South Tropical Trail. Traveling even further north of Pineda are some of the largest estates on the trail, ranging from 1 to 10+ acres of land (fun fact: on the larger parcels of land, horses are allowed!). Homes sell from anywhere between $7,000,000 to $2 million (just for a plot of land) depending on exact location and size.
