The “Sun Trap of the South” is an Eastbourne slogan which is not used so much these days, but still remains very true. The reason for this claim to be perpetually true is Beachy Head and the South Downs. The prevailing winds are from the South West, and when they reach the coast the airflow shoots upwards taking the cloud with it, and Eastbourne then enjoys its own micro-climate. Eastbourne is generally the sunniest place in mainland Britain which means that all visitors and residents find it a very attractive place to be.

As a result of its history as a resort, Eastbourne has facilities for a host of activities and interests. As examples the town has the largest composite marina in Europe having about 1000 berths, 3300 residential properties, and a retail & leisure park. There are also four golf courses and four theatres. The town is home to the pre-Wimbledon International Tennis Championships and has the award winning Towner Gallery as its latest feature. The town also marks the eastern end of the newly designated South Downs National Park, ideal for walking, rambling and a host of outdoor pursuits.

Other local activities include virtually all forms of watersports, hang-gliding, stock car racing, an artificial ski slope, open air concerts, and arts events.

There is a very wide range and choice of schooling from infants through to Sussex Downs College and in the private sector there are four schools including Eastbourne College. The University of Brighton also has a strong presence in the town.
