Minecraft launches new players into a vast open world, but what if you have an idea of where you want to start the game? We’ve rounded up the best Minecraft seeds to help you get started.
What are seeds in Minecraft?
In Minecraft, a seed is a code that is used to generate your world. The game usually gives you a random number when you create a new world, but you can enter your own custom seed code. Players share seeds so they can start the game in their preferred biome with access to specific resources.
How to use Minecraft seeds
On the Minecraft world selection screen, select Create new. In world settings, go to Advanced and click below seed of the world. Enter the seed number, then select To create.
The best Minecraft seeds
These seeds were tested in Minecraft Bedrock version 1.9.2. Results may be different depending on your version.
If you want to go straight into the dungeons without having to search for enemy strongholds, this seed starts you in a forest near three strongholds, all within 1500 blocks of the spawn point. In addition to tons of loot and mobs, each stronghold contains an End Portal that you can activate to reach the Ender Dragon.
survival island towns
If you’re new to survival island challenges, this seed is a good place to start, as you’ll spawn near a town that has everything you need. If you’re playing the Java version, there will be four villages on the island to explore, but Bedrock users will have at least one village.
Mangrove Jungle Island
This survival island is half mangrove swamp and half jungle biome. The setting is beautiful, but not particularly hospitable, so your main goal is to make a boat and get off the island as quickly as possible. If you decide to tame an ocelot, you can take it with you.
This seed starts near a rare mushroom biome, the only biome with no hostile mobs, making it the perfect spot for your safe house. Since you’ll need a boat to get there, you might want to explore the nearby desert temple first, but watch out for booby traps.
great old swamp
Do you feel more comfortable in the swamp? This seed has possibly the largest swamp biome ever discovered in Minecraft. Throughout the swamp, you’ll find five witch huts, several ruined nether portals, and hundreds of frogs. If you give magma cubes to frogs, you can create beautiful Froglight blocks to light up the night.
mansion in a meadow
Most survival island seeds require you to have a rough time in the wilderness, but this one starts near a huge mansion in the woods that you can raid for resources and claim as your base. You can also find two villages near the spawn point. The mansion will only be there if you play the Bedrock edition.
The lush caves are perhaps the most beautiful biomes, and they are the only place you can harvest Glow Berries and find Axolotls to breed. You’ll start near the entrance to a multi-level cavern, and if you keep exploring, you’ll discover mines and an ancient city.
Mansion overlooking a stalactite cave
This seed is prime real estate. You will appear in a windswept savannah a short distance from a mansion that has a stunning view of a waterfall flowing into a stalactite cave. The mansion will only appear if you’re playing the Java version, but it’s still a wonderful place to build your base.
Windswept winter village
If you prefer cold climates, this seed puts you in the middle of multiple frigid environments. The centerpiece is a unique village that sits at the base of an imposing tower. The town will only be there if you play the Bedrock version.
ancient city seed
This one is definitely not for beginners, but if you want to dive into one of Minecraft’s most elusive biomes, give this ancient city seed a try. Keep an eye out for guardians and other malicious mobs as you hunt for loot. The risks are high, but the potential rewards are huge.
Start in the Badlands
You will start in the badlands biome, where you can find terracotta to build your base. If you travel a bit, you will find the entrance to a stalactite cave that leads to an ancient city. There is also a village near the starting point.
bamboo panda island
Just like in real life, pandas are very rare in Minecraft, so you may need this seed if you want to see one. You’ll start out on an island filled with various pandas, bamboo, and not much else. Also, just like in real life, pandas aren’t very helpful, but they are undeniably cute.
snowy mountain valley
Ideal for hikers, this world features a vast valley surrounded by snow-capped mountains. To find it, use the teleport command or travel to coordinates X=8474, Y=110, Z=5651. Beyond the mountain range, there is a nearby town, an End Portal, and an ancient city.
Tired of wandering around the map looking for specific structures? This rare seed has a desert village with an outpost, a nether portal, a desert temple, and a shipwreck. There are a variety of biomes in each direction, so you shouldn’t have to stray far to find what you need.
king of the mountain
Do you want to reach the highest point possible in Minecraft? You’ll start out in a biome of rocky peaks where you can climb up to get a stunning view of your Minecraft world. You will see dozens of different biomes and structures from the highest peaks. Travel to the southwest of the spawn point and descend inside the mountain to explore ancient cities.
Biome samples are considered by many players to be the best Minecraft seeds because they give you wide access to a variety of resources. This seed spawns a huge island with just about every biome and structure in the game, so you can pretty much do anything without much exploring.
coral lake paradise
You will start in the badlands, but if you look around you. You will discover the entrance to a lush cave in the side of the mountain. Look over the cliff into the water to see a majestic coral reef lake that empties into a large coral reef biome. Head east of the starting point to find towns, temples, monuments, and more.
