The Tobi Lota ferry port in Adonara, East Flores, was bustling with ferry boats on Wednesday (July 26, 2023). In front of the port is Larantuka, located right at the foot of Mount Ile Mandiri. The distance from Larantuka to Adonara is less than 1 mile. A bridge connecting Larantuka and Adonara called the Palmerah Bridge is being built, starting from Paloh Larantuka Beach to Tanah Merah Adonara Beach.

The construction of the Bridge Palmerah, connecting Larantuka with Adonara Island, will revive various sectors in those two areas. Four government and private agencies have agreed to build this national strategic project with a value of IDR 3 trillion.

The presence of the 1.6 kilometer long bridge, apart from having an economic impact, will also complement the religious tourism of Semana Santa - a series of the Holy Triday Easter in Larantuka - as well as becoming a new destination.
