You stated the important items in sunprotection. do go out early and late if you can avoid mid day sunexposure. Wear a wide-brimmed hat, and a good sunscreen. If you are exposed without umbrella, you might wear both a chemical sunscreen and on top of that, apply a zinc or titanium dioxide 'sunblock' as you need good protection against both UV A and UV B.
