Minecraft 1.16.1 Seeds (August 2020) – Nether Update Seeds!

The Minecraft 1.16 Nether Update is finally here, and we've got a bunch of great seeds for you to try out in your brand new world. There's a whole lot of new stuff to experience, plus you'll want to make your way down to the Nether to check out all of the new biomes, and harvest new

Using the Key Locations

If you want to teleport yourself to one of the locations I mention, just copy the numbers listed by the one you want to visit. Go into your game and into that seed, then in the command window just type in "/teleport @s " or "/tp @s" and paste the numbers! Once you hit enter, you should teleport to the location.

You can also use these coordinates if you show coordinates in the options before creating your world (Java you can hit F3)! I try to keep locations I list relatively close to the spawn, so try to head in the direction that matches the coordinates to find it. You can find more information on these in our Minecraft Commands List.

Here's a list of some of the best Minecraft 1.16 and 1.16.1 Seeds:

Savanna Village Overlapping w/Dark Oak Forest (Bedrock)

Credit: lickthaticecreamcone - Seed: -98141769

This is a pretty cool seed because there's this great looking savanna village that is overlapped with a dark oak forest biome. You're also right near a desert as well, so there's three biomes connected at the village. There's also a very large ravine right near the village that you can explore. At spawn, you will find a village right nearby that's worth checking out! If you head into the desert, there's a couple of pyramids and another village.

Four Witch Huts (Java)

Not too far from spawn there's four Witch Huts that almost form a perfect square in a large swamp biome! This is a pretty rare occurrence and could be valuable to you if you want to be near witches and have the ability to hunt down slimes. What is even better about this seed is that you spawn directly in a village with a huge ravine in it. You can get to diamond level in this ravine, which could get you started with some valuable resources early. I didn't find any while flying around there, but delving deeper into the area could yield some good finds.

If you're looking for a huge Woodland Mansion at spawn then this seed will be great for you! There's also a nearby swamp, and a flower forest within easy walking distance. You'll also find a pretty nice village right on the beach that has a dock and is really well designed. There's another larger village not too far from the mansion, along with a nearby ruined portal and shipwreck.

Octopus Island (Java)

Credit: Plebiain - Seed: 2945671375784082726

What a unique find for a seed! You spawn on an island with a giant taiga and mushroom island biome. If you pan out away from it, you will see that this island is in the shape of an octopus/squid! It's a really awesome layout, and makes for a great looking place to start your base. There's a good sized ravine in the forest area to search for early resources. You'll also find an Ocean Monument, not too far away!

Skinny Mushroom Island (Java)

Credit: Plebiain - Seed: 2332439756294123069

This might be one of the most unique seeds I've ever come across. The main attraction is the spawn, where you start out on a huge skinny mushroom island. This is a rare biome, and the attraction of it is that monsters will not spawn on it. There's also a Ruined Portal on this island which will make for some easy loot. So it's a great safe place to build out your base. From here, you can find a cold ocean with some awesome icebergs, mountain biome, and another ruined portal. If you keep heading towards land from here, you'll come across a swamp biome with a Witch Hut. There's also a shipwreck stuck in an iceberg that looks awesome. If you head even further, you will find a desert biome with a pyramid, as well as a really great desert village that spans over some mountains! You even get some snow here because it mixed with the mountain biome.

The Nether is a solid one if you head into the portal near your spawn. You'll find all of the biomes you want within a reasonable distance of each other. You can also find a Fortress and Bastion Remnant nearby if you want to explore those!

Natural Sculpture (Bedrock)

Credit: KarotBoi - Seed: -1709005712

This is a seed for you more creative types out there, because there's a natural formation that looks like a head holding up a hand not too far from spawn. You could potentially carve this out a bit more and get really artistic if you wanted! It would make for a great focal point for your next base. There's also a pretty interesting area not too far from spawn that has three ocean ruins that are on land! You can explore these and get some quick resources from the chests.

If you do a Nether portal not too far from the original spawn, you get a really nice layout! There's soul sand, crimson forest, warped forest, and a basalt delta all pretty close together. If you want to have access to these areas, then this is a great seed. The nearby Bastion Remnant is also really nice and has a great shape, with the treasure room being easily access once you're inside!

Credit: DJEvvo - Seed: 9058136630944956755

If you want a variety of biomes nearby then this is a great Java seed for that! There's a swamp, dark forest, mesa, and desert biome all nearby the spawn. The mesa is absolutely huge, and it features at least three exposed spider spawners in it! You'll also find quite a few mine cart chests on tracks all-around the area. You'll also find a couple of villageds not too far away from the spawn as well. The Nether is a pretty good spawn once you get out from the caves. You'll find a warped forest, soul sand valley, and crimson forest all within range of each other. There's also a bastion remnant and large fortress to explore!

Hillside Savanna Village (Bedrock)

Credit: NDV Games - Seed: 1486378202

If you're looking for various villages, biomes, and a few ruined portals then this seed could be a good option for you. One of the nice features of this one is the savanna village that is partially on a hill with a waterfall on it. You've got three different ruined portals scattered around some of the biomes near the spawn. There's a desert village, pillager outpost, and a second desert village to explore! In the Nether, you'll find a warped forest and a huge basalt delta if you put your portal near the spawn. There's a soul sand valley not too far from it, and if you venture deeper into the zone you'll find a bastion remnant!

Double Blacksmith Near Coral Reef (Bedrock)

Credit: MKR Cinema - Seed: 1792133092

The main attraction to this seed is that you spawn right next to a village that features a double blacksmith! This is pretty useful, so that alone might be worth it. If you explore outward, you'll find some interesting areas to explore. This is a pretty heavily wooded seed with lots of cold areas, so if you're into that you'll probably enjoy it. There's mountains, snow taiga village, and a whole separate snow biome across from the coral reef. You'll find a couple of ocean ruins there, as well as a haunted snow village!

Ravines & Villages (Bedrock)

Credit: MKR Cinema - Seed: -1260790447

This was a surprising seed, because I just kept coming across additional generated structures! You spawn in-between two villages and large ravines. The area here is pretty flat, so you could build out this area relatively easily. If you head towards the desert biome, you will find two different villages and three pyramids to explore! If you get further from spawn, you'll find a pretty interesting floating island. There's also a ravine nearby with a mine to be explored. In the nether you'll spawn right in a huge basalt delta biome, along with a soul sand and crimson forest not too far away!

In this seed, you spawn directly into a pretty large jungle biome. Not only that, you'll find a temple very close by. There's some varied biomes not too far away, and you'll find a couple of villages, as well as a birch forest with a ravine to exploit. If you create a nether portal near spawn, you'll find a lot of great stuff. There's a soul sand valley, two nether fortresses, basalt delta, warped forest, and a bastion remnant! That's pretty much all the stuff you're looking for when you're heading into the nether.

Credit: akirby80 - Seed: 1372924966865103357

Pretty cool spawn that gets you a savanna and a pillager outpost right at spawn. You're also next to a very large desert that has multiple pyramids and a pretty big village. Not too far from here you'll find a ruined portal, as well as a savanna village that is near the desert. There are a bunch of villages to check out, and if you head for the water near the spawn you will find a frozen ocean with quite a few icebergs. In the nether, you will encounter some soul sand you can gather, basalt deltas, nether fortress, and a warped forest biome that the fortress runs through!

Credit: akirby80 - Seed: 6221318995556678784

If you're looking for a whole lot of mesa/badlands to explore then this is a great option. You spawn right next to a village and the mesa biome is right nearby. There's a swamp biome with a Witch's Hut, and another one in a nearby swamp area. You'll find a flower forest as well as the new ruined portal! In the nether you can explore a vast crimson forest biome, along with a warped forest. There's basalt deltas to check out, and even a bastion remnant that has chests to plunder if you can get them from the Piglins!

Jungle Island Seed w/Jungle Temple (Java)

Credit: QibliTF - Seed: 14916203336864

If you're looking for a ton of variety of biomes in your seed then this is a great on to start your journey into the 1.16 Nether update! You start out on a jungle biome that has a temple right on it. So, you can head on in there, avoid some traps, and then grab some free loot. Now, you can pretty much head in any direction and find a variety of biomes. There's so many and they are all pretty close together. I found jungle, snow taiga, ice spikes, savanna, desert, coral reef, swamp, flower forest, and plains. There's a whole lot more to discover, so be sure to check this one out!

Village Next to Mushroom Island at Spawn (Java)

Credit: MinecraftSeedsEveryday - Seed: -5256854541870744071

This is an interesting seed because you spawn right in front of a village and mushroom island biome. Mushroom island biomes are sought after because mobs do not spawn there, so if you don't want to light a bunch of torches to keep them away, it's a good place to build your base. In the desert landmass that is nearby, I found a pyramid, and a very deep ravine. It looks like a ravine spawned within a ravine, because it has one tier, and then goes way deeper in another area. I was able to find some diamond in the area, but it's hovering around above some lava. Be careful if you teleport to the location, because you'll be right in the lava!

Key Locations

  • Savanna Biome: 115 64 -165
  • Shipwreck: -197 59 -224
  • Desert Pyramid: 704 65 10

Villages & Stronghold (Java)

If you'd like a couple of villages really close to your spawn then this might be the seed for you. There's a normal village right nearby, and if you make a short run over to the desert you will find another one. There's also an exposed mineshaft near the plains village which is right near spawn. You can also find a ruined portal, ocean monument, and a couple more desert villages not too far away.

If you want to eventually head to the Stronghold it isn't all that far away from the spawn! We've got the coordinates listed below so you don't have to go looking for it!

Credit: Avomance - Seed: -931867804274397901

You start out in a flower forest biome which is great for finding bees and collecting honey. If we head to the north we'll find a mesa biome with an exposed spawner and some mines to explore. If you keep going north you'll eventually find a swamp biome, ruined portal, and a taiga village! To the south you'll run into an ocean with a shipwreck and ocean ruins. If you keep heading south across the water you'll find a tundra biome and eventually a tundra village! If you head east you will find a really nice mountain biome, and you will eventually run into a pillager outpost. To the west expands the mesa biome quite a bit. If you keep heading this direction you will eventually run into a pretty sweet mansion with a nearby swamp biome!

Mushroom, Forest, Mesa Biomes All Near Spawn (Java)

This seed has a lot of diversity right at spawn due to it being near a Mushroom Field, Mesa, and Forest Biome! You can head over to the mushroom area for safety against monsters, and then go explore quite a bit of mines in the mesa biome! If you expand outwards more, you will find villages in the desert, a swamp biome with a hut, and you can find some Ruined Portals as well! There's a lot to love about this seed, so if you're looking for a bunch of variety then this might be the one for you!

If you create a Nether Portal in the initial spawn area you will start out in a Crimson Forest which can have Piglins for trading!

You don't spawn exactly at this large island, but you can make it there without too much trouble if you head northwest and go through the desert biome. Use F3 to track your coordinates or just teleport there using the numbers below.

I did end up running into a Mushroom Field during my travels, but it's pretty far from the island!

Village Oasis w/Ruined Portal (Java)

We've got a great seed here with a plains biome that features a large village inside of it right smack in the middle of a large desert. You spawn right next to the village, so it's easily accessible right when you start out. There's also a Ruined Portal right nearby which features a Block of Gold and a Chest you can loot. These are newly added in the 1.16 update. The desert is large and features a pyramid, as well as an additional village not too far away from spawn. There's also a shipwreck right off of shore from the desert village.

I found quite a few villages just doing my general exploring, so it appears this seed has quite a bit to offer if you're willing to venture out!
