A UV index measures the strength of the ultraviolet radiation from the sun, which are the harmful rays that can cause sunburn and other skin damage. The higher the index, the higher the risk of sunburn. To help you prepare, we’ve compiled the UV index readings for the UK’s favourite holiday destinations around the world, complete with recommendations for sun lotion SPF strength and accessories. Find your destination on the chart below and get UV-ready.
Now you know what to expect, it’s time to load up on the right sun cream to match your destination and start packing. Besides, this is the perfect excuse to treat yourself to a new hat and a stylish new pair of sunglasses, so things are really looking up. All that’s left to do now is enjoy your family holiday, where you’ll be able to catch some rays without the rays catching you out.
