East Flores Regency (Indonesian: Kabupaten Flores Timur) is a regency in East Nusa Tenggara province of Indonesia. Established in 1958,[1] the regency has its seat (capital) in Larantuka on Flores Island. It covers a land area of 1,813.20 km2, and it had a population of 232,605 as of the 2010 census. The latest official estimate (as at January 2014) is 251,820. 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.
