Eastbourne Lifeguards & Beach Safety
Eastbourne's Good Beach Guide recommended beach offers lifeguard patrolled safe bathing, a first aid post and a kids wristband scheme.
The main resort beach from the Wish Tower to the Pier offers both peace of mind and even some fun Tyro Lifeguard courses to keep youngsters busy.
Discover some of our quieter un-patrolled beaches, but do following our tips on how to use the beach safely.
Eastbourne Beach Lifeguards
Lifeguards patrol the Wish Tower to Pier beach from May 1 to September 30 and are trained in first aid, rescue methods, life support, spinal management, weather meteorology, boat handling and regularly undergo fitness training.
Visit the lifeguard station for first aid, advice on sea conditions, weather, Kids Wristbands and equipment hire.
For more info on beach safety - read our leaflet.
Kidzsafe Wristband Scheme
Keep in contact with the kids! Pick up our FREE Kidzsafe wristbands from the Lifeguard Station or Seafront Office.
Kidzsafe wristbands are waterproof and a great way to reunite lost children with parents. Simply write your phone number on the wristband and our lifeguards and seafront staff will contact you if your child becomes lost and cannot find you.
