Shipwreck Cove

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!

King Turtle's Ocean Mushroom Quest

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

The Three Smiths' Island

This seed is one in a million! You spawn on a vert small island village that is home to three Blacksmiths! This is a perfect set up for those that like the ocean and mining lives. Once you're ready (which won't take long!), you'll have access to an Ocean Monument that is within sight of the village. If you were looking for a map to make use of the new Conduit Power, this is the perfect seed to use.

Small Island Surrounded by Icebergs Seed

Another seed that would be great for a challenging playthrough of Minecraft. You start off on a small island with a single tree and are surrounded by icebergs! If you can get yourself out on the water, however, you aren't too far away from some interesting biomes. There's a swamp that will allow you to get some slimeballs and maybe even create a lead. You can also find a taiga biome not too far away from it!

Shipwreck, Island, and Ocean Monument Seed

This island seed would make for a great challenge based game, because you start out on a small island with a shipwreck and an ocean monument right next to it! If you master the first monument, there's another one not too far away. You are very much in the middle of nowhere out here. There are some small islands around, but you will need to boat pretty far to reach the mainland!

The Texan Secession

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 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

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

Two Ocean Monument Island

If you want an island that challenges you, this is a great one to try. You spawn on a small island with no trees, but between two ocean monuments. Your main challenge will be accessing wood in the early game, then moving to conquer the ocean monuments for those precious Prismarine Crystals. Alternatively, you could always just enjoy the island living as a castaway!

Badlands Island Seed

For something a bit different, with this seed you spawn right next to a massive mesa biome island! There's a ton of land to explore here, and it is in the middle of a bunch of other biomes that you can check out if you get tired of the brick colors of the badlands.

Three Ruin Island Seed

Seed: -1673096729 - Platform: Bedrock 1.16+

This seed features a pretty large ocean biome, but right near the island you spawn is an island that feature three island ruins that are on top of land! Each of these ruins should have a chest in them, so you can get some quick early loot to start building up your first base or two. There's quite a few islands scattered around, but there's also a landmass not too far from spawn that features a couple of Villages and even a Ravine that has a Mineshaft!

Huge Island Seed

Seed: 3254239 - Platform: Bedrock 1.16+

If you want just a huge island to build on then this is a good starting seed for you. It doesn't have a ton in terms of villages, but it does have another large island but is more mountainous. It also has a fairly close swamp biome, and there's a Mineshaft you can explore as well.

  1. Could you use these seeds in xbox one?

    1. Yes you can

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

    1. This is the java equivalent

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

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

    1. Java 🙂 It says so underneath the picture

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

  6. 5073900511118366916 – small island with few trees around, world just started – not explored yet – have fun (v1.16.3 java seed).

  7. WHY AREN’T THERE ANY SEEDS FOR THE NINTENDO SWITCH????!!!!!!!! ):>

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

  8. 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.

  9. 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!

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

  11. 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!

  12. 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
