Millenials and Babyboomers
No longer just the ultimate honeymoon destination, Tahiti’s latest visitor figures show that babyboomers and
millennials account for the lion’s share of visitors to the islands.
In the first five months of the year, young travellers (15-34) and those aged around the babyboomer bracket
(55-74) each accounted for around a third of visitors to the Islands of Tahiti. Meanwhile the month of May saw
a 26 per cent year-on- year increase among 15 to 24-year- old travellers.
Rental Homes and Family Run Pensions
While the destination’s overwater bungalows are still a big drawcard for couples, Air Tahiti Nui Regional
Manager Australia New Zealand Alan Roman said the freedom and value afforded by rental homes and family-
run pensions was attracting different markets to the Islands.
“Tahiti is an incredibly diverse destination, combining stunning natural beauty with a year-round tropical
climate, an ancient culture and myriad activities on land and at sea. What we’re seeing is groups of friends hire
out homes and rent a car so they can see the islands DIY-style, as well as babyboomers totally immersing in
the destination at rustic B&B type accommodation,” Mr Roman said.
“Young Aussie travellers are also realising that the ultimate getaway is closer than they think with Tahiti only a
hop and a skip across the Pacific – about the same travel time as other millennial hot spots such as Hawaii and
