Larantuka is a neat and clean seaport on the eastern end of Flores Island, East Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia. Indeed the town stretches 10km along the coast and only half a kilometre inland. Geographically, it lies mid-way between Bali and Darwin. The port is nestled at the base of a 1430m extinct conical volcano at the eastern end of the island, from where the small nearby islands of Solor, Adonara, and Lembata are visible across the narrow strait. Everything in town is within walking distance. From the pier, boats leave for Timor and the other islands.

The Easter Procession held in town is one of the old Portuguese cultural heritages, and is worth seeing. The island has a Portuguese trading history. In 1854 it became part of the Dutch East Indies, and later, Indonesia. Children are everywhere, full of laughter, with their greeting ‘Hello Mister’. Lots of Catholic churches line the roads with a few mosques sprinkled in. There are a number of tuna boats at the docks and indeed they anchor all along the strait. The boats have a large square platform on the bow where fishermen line up with bamboo poles, flipping hooked tunas.

Hire a colourful bemo – all are brightly painted with murals on the sides and their radios are blasting the latest tunes - to look around town. Today, Larantuka’s landmark is its Cathedral called Reinha Rosari. The cathedral together with the two chapels known as Capela Tuam Ana (Chapel of Jesus Christ) and Capela Tuan Ma (Mother Mary Chapel) are the centre of the yearly Easter processions. Made by a meticulous and arduous process, the locally named kwatek kinge cloth is unique among the Flores fine ikat cloths, in that it has small seashells sewn into the design.
