The Eagle Square - also known as the Dataran Lang - is a prominent man-made landmark that greets visitors to the island. The square spreads across an area of 19 acres and was established by the Prime Minister of Malaysia. The majestic sculpture features a massive reddish-brown eagle positioned to take to flight with its enormous wings outstretched and stands tall at an imposing 12 metres in height. The area offers spectacular views of the surrounding Kuah Bay and features a series of fountains, terraces and bridges, creating a picture-perfect sight. The square is also located in close proximity to several shops, malls and places of interest and is the ideal spot for a leisurely stroll or even a private dinner at one of the restaurants close-by.
