Mai Beach is a fictional place. This is a comment on the ownership of the beaches, and some beach accesses in New Zealand being changed, with the foreshore and out 20 metres into the ocean now being owned by local iwi around the country. There was concern around what public beach access would be, and who actually “owns” this land. The phonic similarity of “mai” and “my” is intended.
