The surprising sex hotspot right by Chris and Elsa's $8m Byron Bay mansion

Four years ago, Chris Hemsworth and his wife Elsa Pataky made the decision to leave the glitz and glamour of Hollywood for the idyllic scenery of Byron Bay in northern New South Wales, Australia.

The couple and their three children – India, six, and four-year-old twins Sasha and Tristan – now reside in an $8 million mansion right by the beach, but they’re reportedly living right by another catch-22 area.

According to Daily Mail Australia, one “well-informed local” has claimed the Hemsworth household is a stone’s throw away from an illegal nude beach and a sex hotspot. Right-o, then.

“It’s definitely no place for a family round there and he should be careful while exploring with his children,” the local told the publication.

Holiday-goers and backpackers apparently “get up to all sorts” at Kings Beach on the Broken Head Nature Reserve, which is just a six-minute drive from Chris and Elsa’s home.

While the couple love their lives in Byron Bay and are often seen out and about soaking up the sun at the beach with their kids, Elsa revealed to Yahoo Lifestyle last year it wasn’t a move they’d ever planned on doing.

The couple actually made an agreement on where they’d live, but relocating to Australia wasn’t part of that agreement.

The 42-year-old insisted she “loved” Byron Bay, but it was never in the cards to move there.

“We always said when we met, I’d never make you live in Spain, and he would never make me live in Australia because our families are so far away from us,” Elsa revealed.

But, the Spanish model insisted it was totally “worth it”.

“I love it and it’s the best place in the world,” the mum-of-three said. “It’s worth it.”
