I went outside to have sunbath but there was very low sunlight or I should say there was no sun rays at all. It was partly clouded.

Please check my sentences.

"I went outside to [STRIKE]have[/STRIKE] sunbathe but there was very [STRIKE]low[/STRIKE] little sunlight." [STRIKE]or I[/STRIKE] Should I say "there was no sun [STRIKE]rays[/STRIKE] at all" or "it was partly [STRIKE]clouded[/STRIKE] cloudy"?

Please check my sentences.

See above. We don't "have a sun bath", we "sunbathe" - it's a verb.

You could say:

I went outside to sunbathe but there was very little sun/sunlight.
I went outside to sunbathe but there was no sun!
I went outside to sunbathe but it was partly/a bit cloudy.

To be honest, saying "I went outside" is somewhat redundant. We don't sunbathe indoors!

I wanted to sunbathe but there was no sun.
