8 days in Coron, too long?

Hi, we are a group of 4 and will be visiting Coron for 8days/7nights. All of us would be visiting Coron for the first time, will 8 days be too long? Any suggestions on what to see and do there? Thanks!

You could stay in the town or near to it, then move to another island such as Sangat.

I personally found Coron good for at least 5 or more activity days. If you stay longer you can also include more beach/chill out.

8 days is too long for me. After island hopping and maybe some diving, maybe 5D4N or 4D3N will be good.

in 8 days you will be able to do most of the island hopping circuits. if you thing is taking your sweet sweet time then go ahead.

but for the average traveller, 3 days will pretty much cover the best there is in Coron.

thanks for the link of the things to do in Coron. Since we are already booked for 8 days it seems that there is a possibility that we could do all of those :D. Will it be better to go on tours or should we just hire boats ourselves and choose what to do or go everyday? Which will be cheaper or more enjoyable? and also it seems that Coron Town has no beach am i right? Will it be better to look for accommodations in one of the islands or would that be too expensive compared to accommodations in town?

Thanks again!

Cheaper is group tour. Enjoyable will depends.

With your own boat, you dictate the amount of time to stay in each island. This option will be more expensive.

With group tours, everyone will follow the boatman schedule.

Coron Town has no beach. If you stay in outlying island, of course it will most probably be more scenic. However the price of things will definitely go up as you are not so accessible to food or transport as you are isolated in the resort.
