6 day trip to Busuanga / Sangat Island


6 of us are travelling to Busuanga in late February from Boracay Island. We're intending to stay at Sangat Island for 4 nights, and we have a couple of days that we haven't organised anywhere to stay / do.

Does anyone have any recommendations on things to do around Busuanga, I have read through various threads and have seen that Barracuda lake / trip to Coron Island is highly recommended.

Please note we are non-divers (shame as Coron is supposed to have some of the best wrecks in the world...I haven't logged a dive since 1999)

Are there beaches in and around Coron Town to relax on, places to go out for a few drinks in the evening, and can anyone recommend a place to stay that is easily accessed from town / beach / activity?

Also, is it recommended to book boat hire for island hopping etc in advance or can we just show up and find something quite easily?

I just wanted to get an indication as to what we need to organise in advance and what we can sort out when we get there.

Many thanks

There's nothing i the way of beaches around Coron town but a boat trip to Malcapuya Island is a must. There are no buildings, just a white sandy beach. We spent a day there - very relaxing - just take some food, water & sunscreen.

I wouldn't book it in advance - either your hotel can sort it or try a visit to coron town to get a cheaper deal.

We also went island hopping and went to the Lagoons for snorkelling and rafting - It was excellent!

Have fun
