Pantai Jerjak neighbourhood, Sungai Nibong, Penang (20 September, 2009)
Pantai Jerejak (GPS: 5.34553, 100.30268), also written Pantai Jerjak, is a middle-class residential neighbourhood in Sungai Nibong, Penang. It got its name from being on the coast overlooking Pulau Jerejak. Pantai Jerejak was established in the late 1970's and early 1980's as the population of Penang began to spill southwards and former countryside made way for residential development.
The houses in Pantai Jerejak comprise single-storey link house, double-storey link house and double-storey semi-detached houses. In more recent times, there are also a few high rises built around the periphery of the housing estate.

Traffic is smooth except for Wednesday nights, where there's a Pasar Malam (night market) along Jalan Aziz Ibrahim. Also, some weekend evening rush hours may see jams along Jalan Aziz Ibrahim. Jalan Sultan Azlan Shah, across from the Pesta Site, will see congestion in the month of December when the annual Pesta Pulau Pinang takes place.
Pantai Jerejak is served by Rapid Penang Bus No. 401. To get more buses, you need to walk to Jalan Sungai Dua, some 200 meters away.
