Chris Hemsworth spent his birthday at the beach! The Thor star and his wife Elsa Pataky enjoyed a weekend away with friends on Queensland’s Orpheus Island in honor of his 34th birthday. The dad-of-three, who turned 34 on August 11, said he had enjoyed "one of the best weekends ever" as he shared photos from the trip on Instagram.

The Australian actor chose a truly idyllic spot for his weekend away; the Orpheus Island Resort, which is a secluded Aussie hideaway that accommodates just 28 guests at any time, so Chris and his friends would have been able to completely relax and enjoy all that the island has to offer in privacy.

On Monday, Chris posted a montage that showed him and Elsa sharing a sweet kiss on the beach, and standing at the edge of the beachfront infinity pool together, that read: "One of the best weekends ever thanks @orpheusisland and @australia. If you haven't been then add it to the long list of amazing places to see in Oz, it's a must!" Meanwhile Elsa shared her own series of holiday photos, which she captioned: "Sunday fun day!"

The pair, who are parents to five-year-old daughter India and three-year-old twins sons, Sasha and Tristan, took in all the activities the resort had to offer. Chris and Elsa, 41, were seen swimming, snorkeling in the sea, while the group also enjoyed paddle boarding, surfing and relaxing by the pool. Elsa also found time to wish the love of her life a happy birthday – with a photo showing off her strength. “Happy birthday to my koala bear!! @chrishemsworth. best weekend ever!
