brighton

Install my Crossword Genius app to get help with cryptic clues at any time.

Here is my best explanation:

'seaside location' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'sunny and happening' is the wordplay.
'sunny' becomes 'bright' ('bright' can be similar in meaning to 'sunny').
'and' says to put letters next to each other.
'happening' becomes 'on'.
'bright'+'on'='BRIGHTON'
