TRIBUNBATAM.id - For years, tourists who take a trip on the island of Flores, East Nusa Tenggara (NTT) mostly just cross the Trans Flores Road on the south coast. 

Along the Trans Flores Road on the south coast, tourists usually visit objects in Larantuka to Maumere to enjoy various tourism objects, including cultural, nature, and traditional houses. 

For example, visiting the three colored lakes of Kelimutu or stopping by the Bung Karno Exile House - the nickname for the first President of the Republic of Indonesia, Soekarno, in Ende.  

In addition, tourists also often visit tourist attractions such as the Ruteng Puu Traditional Village, Cobweb Rice Fields around Ruteng City, Liang Bua, Wae Rebo Traditional Village, and others. 

Now, along with road access that is getting better on the North Coast or Trans Pantai Utara (pantura) which stretches for 800 kilometers, tourism actors and travel agents are starting to promote tour packages along the north coast, from East Flores to Labuan Bajo

Unfortunately, the road access from Manggarai Regency to West Manggarai is still not opened so that tourist trips from East Flores only arrive at Reo, Reo District, Manggarai Regency, then turn to Ruteng and continue the journey to Labuan Bajo. This is quite tiring for tourists.

Some road points still need to improve the asphalt quality, although others are quite good. It is hoped that more vigorous tourism promotion can help accelerate its development. 

If the Trans Flores Pansela Road tends to be winding, the Trans Pantai Utara isn't like that. 

There are also very few inclines and tourists who pass by have more opportunities to see panoramic views of the beach and sea along the way.

Attractions on Jalan Trans Pantai Utara

On the north coast of Labuan Bajo, tourists can stop by Longos Island and Bari Beach.

On Longos Island, tourists can explore a round island that stretches for 9 kilometers from the west to the east.

The place is a habitat for thousands of bats and wotong bird nests.

Then, shift to the north of Manggarai Regency to see the beautiful panorama of Torong Besi Beach, as well as see the cave with the statue of the Virgin Mary, and stop by several other beaches.

Meanwhile, if you go to the northern part of East Manggarai, tourists can play at Dampek Beach, Nanga Lirang Beach, SUT, and others. Not to forget, also see Komodo dragons sunbathing, Laing Lewe White Sand Beach and Watu Payung Beach.

Especially at Watu Payung Beach, adequate rest areas have been built for tourists.

Meanwhile, if you take a trip to the northern part of Ngada Regency, tourists can come to 17 Riung Island and see Komodo dragons on Ontoloe Island, or to Rii Ta Island and Kinde Island in Nagekeo Regency.

Meanwhile, in the northern part of Ende Regency, there are Keburea and Marole Beaches, as well as Magepanda Beach, Tanjung Island, Palue Island, and a number of other islands in Sikka Regency.

In order to be more flexible and can enjoy the scenery more, exploring this route while riding a motorbike is recommended.

In a day, you can approach four to five places, but depending on the duration of the visit in each place.

Unfortunately, access to restaurants or places to eat is still very minimal here. Although, visitors who come to these objects can stop by the stalls available in the vicinity.

If you're worried that you won't find a comfortable place to eat, you can take your lunch with you on your trip.
