The Shortlist

  • 1.18: Because 1.18 is still new, Mojang may change the world generation in a way that might affect the seeds. While we don't believe it will cause major changes to the environment, this may cause some of the key locations for each seed to be inaccurate.

Seed: 2038737658577796220

This is a wonderful Jungle spawn that puts you on a Jungle island that, from above, appears to be eclipsing another island. You can opt to enjoy solace in the middle of the ocean, or you can travel a few hundred blocks east or west to find plenty of other biomes! This seed provides everything you might need for Jungle living.

  • Key Locations
    • Cluster of Ruins: -248 72
    • Shipwreck #1: -344 152

Rock and Water

Seed: 3969420520284585470

You spawn on a rather large island in this seed with several other islands nearby. This seed is great for starters because it starts you in an area that you can roam for weeks or months, but you're not too far off from mainland when you're ready to move on. You also have a beautiful view from the mountain, where you can see the surrounding structures, which includes two Villages and an Ocean Monument!

  • Key Locations
    • Village #1: -280 328
    • Village #2: 216 664
    • Ocean Monument: 136 168

Bedrock 1.18 Seeds

Hawaii

Seed: -1863639429

It's not a perfect representation to the Hawaiian islands, but it's pretty close by Minecraft world generation standards! In this seed, you spawn on the largest of a cluster of islands, right next to a Village. This is a great starter seed for new players or for players who want to get used to Minecraft 1.18. Be sure to explore the area to find the Buried Treasure and the Ocean Monument!

  • Key Locations
    • Village: 56 232
    • Buried Treasure #1: 136 8
    • Buried Treasure #1: 72 -40

Survivor's Delight

Seed: -413557441

If you were looking forward to experience Minecraft 1.18 in true solitude on a basic survival island, this seed is for you. This is the ideal formation for players who enjoy life on the see, with one half of the spawn island a breezy beach, and the other half full of wood and stone for you to establish a nice home.

  • Key Locations
    • Mushroom Fields: -26 66
    • Ruins Cluster: -280 8
    • Buried Treasure: -696 72

Java 1.16/1.17 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
    • Taiga Village: -2200 -775

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

Comments

  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

    1. The word SwiftStar1 converts to -1720695316. That means the seed in number form is -1720695316.

  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).

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

    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
