Java Seeds

Bamboo Island

A Bamboo Island with Pandas.

Seed: 6622662217031624373

This is a unique seed that starts you off on a small bamboo island, complete with a Jungle Temple and a pair of Pandas! This island seed is perfect for players who love Pandas, a somewhat rare mob in the game. You don't start off completely dry, though. There are plenty of trees for getting logs, the Temple provides some decent material, and the Pandas provide company.

  • Key Locations
    • Jungle Temple #1: 25 55
    • Jungle Temple #2: 615 75
    • Jungle Temple #3: 675 -215
    • Stronghold: 1524 212
    • Ocean Monument: -280 -230

The Mushroom Island Portal

A birch forest and mushroom biome island in Minecraft.

On this map, you don't start on the island being featured, but it's not far off from the world's spawn point. The massive island is half Birch Forest with a village and half Mooshroom Island. However, as rare as that is, what's more fascinating is that directly below the village is a completed 12 Eye Portal inside a Stronghold. If you're looking for a killer seed that will get you to the Enderdragon fast, this one is perfect for you.

  • Key Locations
    • Stronghold Stairway: -2124 -732
    • Mineshaft: -2150 -600
    • Ocean Monument: -2460 -800
    • Zombie Spawner: -1989 -514

Life and Death

A zombie village and normal village island.

Image Via: Pro Game Guides | Discovered By: BigBrain5HeadSeed: 328211190642393298 | Platform: Java

In this map, you spawn in a zombie village in a large ocean that branches into a normal village on the other side of the island. Your goal? Protect the villagers at all costs! Scavenge for supplies from the dead zone when you can, but don't bring any of the zombies back. This is a one-of-a-kind seed and an exceptional way to start a new Minecraft Survival world!

  • Key Locations
    • Zombie Village: Spawn
    • Living Village: 5 70 10
    • Ocean Monument: 220 50 635
    • Shipwreck #1: 390 50 -85
    • Shipwreck #2: -230 50 -80

Shipwreck Cove

An island with two shipwrecks in Minecraft.

Image via: Pro Game Guides | Discovered By: Plebiain | Seed: 7777777777988733304 | Platform: Java

On Shipwreck Cove, you spawn on a shipwreck, stranded to an island, far from civilization. However, there is another Shipwreck here, which means you might not be alone. Well, in Single Player, you know you're alone. Use your imagination! Make up a story, or just enjoy the peace and solitude of Shipwreck Cove!

  • Key Locations
    • Shipwreck #1: 70 70 25
    • Shipwreck #2: 40 70 -90
    • Mineshaft: -55 40 170
    • Taiga Village: -1212 90 -432
    • Stronghold: -1212 40 -636

King Turtle's Ocean Mushroom Quest

A couple turtles on an island with an Ocean Monument nearby.

Image via: Pro Game Guides | Discovered By: GeographyMapper | Seed: -641665237699763711 | Platform: Java

So, we'll be blunt. We gave this the name it has because the Turtles spawned and fit so well with our screenshot of the island, we had to include them. Still, this island seed is anything but ordinary! You start off on an island with ample supply of wood, and must survive through the Mining Fatigue of three Ocean Monuments nearby! Not only that, but this spawn lands you only a few hundred blocks away from a decently-sized Mushroom Island!

  • Key Locations
    • Ocean Monument #1: -345 40 -130
    • Ocean Monument #2: -245 40 190
    • Ocean Monument #3: 50 40 220
    • Mushroom Island #1: 200 70 -200
    • Mushroom Island #2: -500 70 650

Bedrock Seeds

Frozen Mushroom Island

Frozen Island with Mushroom Biom and village.

Seed: -2109507520

In this seed, you don't start at the featured island, but it's not too far away! And the coordinates are easy to remember: 0, 0! This is a unique island seed where the two biomes mushed together are Frozen Tundra and the all-too-rare Mushroom Biome. Be sure to pick up all the tree saplings you can as you journey here from spawn; you won't find any trees. Once you make it, nestle in to the warm village and build your empire from there!

  • Key Locations
    • Snowy Village #1: 250 240
    • Snowy Village #2: 220 -350
    • Mushroom Biome: 335 245
    • Stronghold: 596 -636
    • Ocean Monument: -855 230

Gulla Gulla Island

A Savannah Village island in Minecraft.

Savannah islands are one of the rarer types of islands in Minecraft, and this one has a beautiful one right at the coordinates 0 0. This is not only a great island seed, but a great Survival seed in general. This is a well-protected island with hollowed out mountains, plenty of lava sources and a Savanna Village at the very tip. This is an ideal paradise for new players who are still learning the ropes, or veteran players who are looking to start a world in the most peaceful way possible.

  • Key Starting Points
    • Village #1: 135 55
    • Village #2: 150 600
    • Village #3: 580 555
    • Spider Spawner: -25 -63
    • Zombie Spawner: 109 -37

The Fortress of Solitude

Fortress of Solitude Minecraft Seed.

Image via: Pro Game Guides | Discovered By: mmm_tasteySeed: 1669737730 | Platform: Bedrock

Be like the world-famous hero Superman and have your very own Fortress of Solitude! On this map, you spawn on an island that rests in the dead center of an Ice Spikes biome. This is the perfect place to build a frozen base. The question is, will you use your spawn area to become like The Man or Steel, or will you be more like the Ice King from Adventure Time?

  • Key Locations
    • Stronghold: 2350 40 -240
    • Mineshaft #1: 2415 35 0
    • Mineshaft #2: 2350 35 300
    • Shipwreck #1: 2440 65 185
    • Shipwreck #2: 2280 65 200

The Texan Secession

A small island shaped like Texas in Minecraft.

Image via: Pro Game Guides | Discovered By: Relative-Vacation751 | Seed: 24517192 | Platform: Bedrock

We thought they were joking, but it looks like Texas made good on their threat to secede from the Union! We're kidding, of course, but if you've ever wanted to feel like it actually happened, this map may be the one chance you get. As you can see in the image above, you start off next to a Texas-shaped island that seems to be separating itself from the larger patch of land. Do you want to play rebellious little Texas, or will you reclaim ownership of the state?

  • Key Locations
    • Mineshaft: 350 40 -150
    • Shipwreck #1: 25 70 75
    • Shipwreck #2: -120 70 40
    • Shipwreck #3: 200 70 40
    • Shipwreck #4: -135 70 185

Quadument Mansion

An Ocean Monument near an island spawn.

Image via: Pro Game Guides | Discovered By: Ghostgirly2 | Seed: 73771637 | Platform: Bedrock

You have a vast array of Ocean Monuments to choose from on this seed. Not one, two, or three, but four Ocean Monutes generate near your tiny spawn island, which is quite a supply of Sponges. If you are looking for the resources and gear to take on this sea-monster-ridden world, you can turn just a few hundred blocks away and hit the Woodland Mansion that generates just north of the spawn point! The arrow in the image above points to the world spawn.

  • Key Locations
    • Ocean Monument #1: 215 40 -250
    • Ocean Monument #2: 685 40 -170
    • Ocean Monument #3: 170 40 -115
    • Ocean Monument #4: 600 40 100
    • Woodland Mansion #2: 480 85 -1060

  1. Thanks for the awesome seeds! There all pretty good, but I’m interested in gulla gulla island. What is the seed for it? I didn’t see it posted.

  2. What’s the seed for “The Mushroom Island Portal”? I can’t see the seed anywhere. :s

  3. i didn’t spawn anywhere near a village for the life and death seed. i was on java

  4. i found the best seed 1.17 java seed:5370624007967745999

  5. when i spawned on the The Three Smiths’ Island i didn’t see anything

    1. Which version of Minecraft did you use the seed? That one is for Java. Were you using Bedrock?

      1. Same problem. I’m using Java 1.16.5, and I spawned in a taiga/mega taiga instead.

  6. Nice post ! Thanks for sharing.

  7. these seed are good

    1. We’re glad you like them! Which one are you going to try first?

  8. Could you use these seeds in xbox one?

    1. Yes you can

  9. anyone know the java equivalent to the “tomhanks” seed?

    1. This is the java equivalent

  10. I put in the seed SwiftStar1 and I got a pretty cool variety of a group of islands

  11. On the Large island ( seed 5797705914173781750 )
    What version is it?

    1. Java 🙂 It says so underneath the picture

  12. um, where are the lists for the coordinates?

  13. 5073900511118366916 – small island with few trees around, world just started – not explored yet – have fun (v1.16.3 java seed).


    1. Nintendo Switch is on “Bedrock” so there are seeds for it.

  15. is there a seed that has lots of islands on it

    1. 1471397948= insane archipelago seed in Minecraft like crazy good 10 islands huge reef with ruin and shipwreck right by the reef on 2 of the island is a sink hole down to lava and after the lislabd is a mesa on one side and savanna on the other. platform bedrock

      1. Thanks for this seed man!
        It’s real fun to play on multiplayer.

    2. The seed “Castaway” is pretty cool too to start on an island on java edition. It is surrounded with shipwrecks and 2 underwater temples.
      Note: The C uppercase is important.

    3. Most of these fit that requirement.

      1. I think he means multiple islands together like an archipelago, which is not on here

        1. Plenty of these have multiple islands together, not sure how you’d know they didn’t without going to each seed.

  16. The Village Island (Java) seed does not spawn the village. The island is there and I can see by the terrain it’s the place, but the village itself won’t be there.

    1. It will likely only work in 1.14.4, so make sure to use that version if you want to use the seed!

  17. If you type “Stranded Deep” in the seed you will spawn on a little island next to a ocean monument

  18. I put the seed tomhanks. there was no island but I spawned next to a woddland mansion and then I adventured like a few meters and I saw an ocean monument and a ender portal under water next to the mansion. WOW HOW LUCKY AM I

    1. It may have been because it was bedrock edition.

    2. I’m going to have to record the versions better of the seeds because they seem to change pretty drastically. I’m glad you found all that stuff though!

  19. that bedrock seed -407474912 was a zombie village island for me; a little bit different layout but had a blacksmith chest and few farm plots started. super neat for a “deserted island” type survival
