5 days, how many Thai islands?

You may have seen from other posts that a friend and I have decided to go to Phuket and then are thinking about some of the islands nearby for a few days, Kho Yao Noi and Yai both came up as positives. But I have since read about Kho Lanta, Kho Lipe and this amazing stone island - Hin Ngam. I'd personally like to see more than just Kho Yaos.
Any suggestions for doable itineraries?

It would be nice to spend more than 1 night in places and with 4 nights/5 days it might be tight. But boats/ferries seems quite easy - Im tempted to try to add in another island to mix it up a bit.
Im still after some of the clear blue water and white sand you see in snorkeling location pics of the islands. (dont think Id do full on diving though, but would love to snorkle). Somehow Kho Yaos although nice, dont seem to have that 'wow' factor with scenery. My friend like yoga, so wouldnt mind a few sessions if available on an island

Thanks in advance again and to those who have replied to me already - much appreciated!

personally i would narrow my choices to one or maybe two places and get to know them and fully enjoy what they have to offer...

moving from one place to another wastes so much time...

Like Bob, I'd recommend one or two places. Otherwise, you'll spend all of your time packing and unpacking, checking in and out of hotels, getting to and from ferries, etc.

Less (destinations) is More (fun, relaxing, rewarding).

If snorkeling is a priority for you, then forget the Kho Yaos.
With only 4 nights......I would stick with one location.
As for ''the clear blue water and white sand you see in snorkeling location pics of the islands''.......my preference for this kind of paradise is well known here.
