Kenton-on-Sea, more commonly known as Kenton, is a small coastal town on the Sunshine Coast, in the Eastern Cape of South Africa. It is situated between the Bushmans and the Kariega Rivers, and lies approximately halfway between the industrial centres of East London (180 kilometres (110 mi)) and Port Elizabeth (130 kilometres (81 mi)). Kenton is part of the Ndlambe Local Municipality in the Sarah Baartman District Municipality of the Eastern Cape.
The town has a population of just over 5000 people. Unusual for a small town in South Africa, Kenton is predominantly English-speaking, except for the suburb of Ekuphumleni, which has a population of about 3600 people and is exclusively Xhosa-speaking. The village of Boesmansriviermond on the opposite banks of the Bushman's River is predominantly Afrikaans-speaking.
