Local village needs to give permission, speak to locals and ask for Council Warden. You may be asked for some money, best is to bring bottle of Coffee and bag of rice.
Very chilled no locals, wave breaks over coral reef of the SE point of Kerawara Island with a reef pass and another potential wave to the left side of pass. Crystal clear warm water.
Fun wave for the area, did not see on a big day but the setup is a good right hand that on its day could be regional class wave.
