Simpang Ampat (GPS: 5.28224, 100.47683), (Traditional/Simplified Chinese: 新邦安拔; Pinyin: Xīnbāng Ānbá) is a town and subdistrict within the district of Seberang Perai Selatan, in Seberang Perai. It is located between the subdistricts of Bukit Mertajam and Sungai Bakap. The area includes Bukit Tambun in the west. Permatang Tinggi which is within Bukit Mertajam, is to the immediate north of Simpang Ampat. The townships and housing estates in Simpang Ampat are contiguous to Permatang Tinggi and Sungai Bakap, though as far as administration is concerned, Sungai Junjong forms the geographical demarkation separating Seberang Perai Tengah from Seberang Perai Selatan. Across from Simpang Ampat is the Bukit Mertajam neighbourhood of Permatang Tinggi.

According to the demarcation on Google Maps, Simpang Ampat proper encompasses the entire area from Juru all the way until Valdor, and includes Batu Kawan, Permatang Tinggi, Bukit Minyak, Bukit Tambun, and smaller villages within the area.

Traditionally the main road through Simpang Ampat is Federal Route 1. The town centre, or pekan, is located on that road, known simply as Jalan Besar or Simpang Ampat Main Road, between the junctions of Jalan Tasek (state route P124) to the north and Jalan Bukit Tambun (state route P172) to the south.

The newer part of Simpang Ampat was developed to the east, such as Bandar Tasek Mutiara, and the smaller housing estates to the southwest of the old town. Since 2005, parcels of land in Simpang Ampat have been developed into new housing estate, to cater to the housing needs of Penang's growing population.
