This is Chris Hemsworth's Favorite Island

We asked actor Chris Hemsworth of Thor fame to name his favorite island in hopes we might run into him on the beach. (Just kidding. Kind of.) Here's his island pick.

Phillip Island, Australia

"It's no secret that I love surfing. When I was a kid, I learned how at Cape Woolamai on Phillip Island near Melbourne, and spent more hours in than water than out. I love how rugged and raw the ocean is there. There are so many different surf breaks and places to dive and swim in such a small area, it's amazing. There is nothing better than waking up, jumping straight into salty water, surfing with the family and then grabbing a coffee at my favorite cafe. I was lucky enough to grow up surrounded by water and now I'm living with my family right on the ocean. Quality time at the beach is the best and I want my kids to grow up around the same stunning landscapes I have." — Chris Hemsworth, actor and native Australian
