East Flores Regency (Indonesian: Kabupaten Flores Timur) is a regency in East Nusa Tenggara province of Indonesia. Established in 1958,[2] the regency has its seat (capital) in Larantuka on Flores Island. It covers a land area of 1,812.85 km2, and it had a population of 232,605 as of the 2010 census,[3] 246,742 at the 2015 Census[4] and 276,896 at the 2020 Census.[1] It encompasses the eastern tip of the island of Flores, together with all of the smaller islands of Adonara and Solor, both part of the Solor Archipelago, and much smaller offshore islands. In 1999 the island of Lembata (formerly called Lomblen) at the eastern end of the Archipelago was separated out to create its own Regency.
