What are the best Minecraft seeds? These seeds are codes that the game uses to generate worlds for you – worlds full of exciting landscapes and key landmarks ripe for exploration. They cover everything from jaw-dropping vistas and landscapes to thrilling dungeons bursting with loot.

Your job is simple: pick the one you want to play around in, whether that’s an ideal spawn location for gathering the best loot or exploring an idyllic landscape. In order to get the best Minecraft seeds up and running, you have to grab the seed code and enter it into the seed field when you’re next creating your next Minecraft world. The game does all the heavy lifting, leaving you to survey your new surroundings to your heart’s content.

Regardless of whether you’re a professional miner or someone about to load up their first world, there’s something you can’t control in Minecraft: the terrain itself. So while your mind may be brimming with possibilities, all too frequently, you’ll spawn in a bland, uninspiring world full of flat grassland and the odd chicken. Hardly the canvas for your masterpiece. Hence this collection of the best Minecraft seeds, from the inspiring to the functional and everything in between.

To help you out, we’ve put the latest version each seed works with after the seed code. You’ll need to set your Minecraft launcher to the indicated version for the correct results.

Here are the best Minecraft seeds:

Mangrove swamp and Outpost

Seed: 3546842701776989958
Version: 1.19

Entering this seed found by Minecraft & Chill on the Bedrock version of the game will place you very close to an Illager outpost near a beach. Close by are a shipwreck, desert pyramid, and a village, but there’s also a vast Mangrove swamp to explore, which is ideal if you want to find Minecraft frogs.

Gaspoweredpick Desert monolith

Seed: 416469024
Version: 1.19

At first, this Minecraft seed from Gaspoweredpick seems unassuming aside from the Mangrove Swamp you spawn in. However, if you climb up a tree, you’ll find a striking spire. This area is a fantastic focal point, with the nearby desert having plenty to discover, including a desert village and a badlands biome.

Best Minecraft seeds: two Minecraft villages across the coast from one another in Minecraft

Coastal Towns

Version: 1.18

This Minecraft 1.18 seed spawns you on a rocky plateau close to a large village. Several spectacular mountains are in the distance, and just across the water is another village built into the cliffside – a perfect base for ocean adventuring. It’s a great Minecraft survival seed for exploring the Caves and Cliffs update.

Woodland Mansion and Lush Caves

Seed: 2377611421072266823
Version: 1.18
Coordinates: X = 487~ Z= 492~

Instead of heading out to sea when you spawn into this seed, sail along the river toward the above coordinates, and you’ll come across a woodland mansion on the riverbank.

On the opposite bank, there’s a cave nestled in the hill – inside, it opens up into a vast lush cave, with a dripstone cave chamber on the side. There are plenty more lush caves in the vicinity to explore, but they require some digging to find.

Beautiful Lush Cave

Seed: -1898624505743265221
Version: 1.18
Coordinates: X= 2890 Y= 47 Z=2200

While this breathtaking cave found by u/SushyDie on Reddit is a fair old trek from the initial spawn location, it’s more than worth the journey.

Travelling into the massive cave via the top of a disused mine shaft attached to the roof by chains, the vast expanse of the cave opens up below you and is the perfect location for an underground metropolis.

Best Minecraft seeds: a Minecraft 1.18 village built into a tall rocky island

Vertical Island Village

Version: 1.18
Coordinates: X= -416 Z= 128

You can find this peculiar village, discovered by u/szmirgley on Reddit, to the west of the island where you spawn. These intrepid villagers have made a home all the way around a tall, jagged cliff jutting out of the sea, with harbours on every side, buildings perched on top, and farmland carved into the cliffside.

Best Minecraft seeds: a Minecraft seed with four biomes in close proximity

Biome Cluster

Seed: -2268290183235354767
Version: 1.17

This seed spawns you in a jungle biome, next to mushroom fields bordered by a desert, which then transitions into beautiful badlands. Oh, and there’s a frozen ocean biome in the mix – we found a single polar bear during our expedition that was admiring its colourful surroundings. We have the intrepid explorer, YouTuber Avomance, to thank for finding this seed.

Best Minecraft seeds: a lush swamp in Minecraft, with a river of blue translucent water snaking around a hilly island with trees

Slime Farm

Seed: 7000
Version: 1.16

This convenient Minecraft seed plonks you right on the edge of a swamp biome, so all you need to do is wait until night falls to farm slimes or create a Minecraft slime farm yourself. You can also use a nearby village to begin farming crops, with a few wolves scattered around it and a small underground cave that hosts an Enderman, all within easy reach.

Best Minecraft seeds: a seed based on the Minecraft title screen

Minecraft title screen

Seed: 2151901553968352745
Version: Beta 1.7.3
Coordinates: X=61.48~, Y=75, Z=-68.73~

For many years the image of the Minecraft title screen eluded researchers determined to track down its whereabouts until finally, the announcement came that someone had found the Minecraft title screen seed. This location of the title screen is now verified to be correct; you can see this momentous discovery in the video along with the exact coordinates and seed code above, which you’ll need to gaze at the now unblurred original Minecraft vista. If that doesn’t work, you can also use the following seed as both of them work: 8091867987493326313.

How to set up a Minecraft seed

It’s important to note that the world you get from a Minecraft seed depends entirely on what version of Minecraft you are running. A brilliant seed you find in version 1.6 could turn into something upsettingly bland in later versions.

To set up a Minecraft seed, select ‘Create New World’ and navigate to ‘more world options’ – this is where you can enter the seed code we’ve included on all the best Minecraft seeds below. Finally, select create, and you’ll warp to the spawn point in your chosen seed.

Those are our very favourite Minecraft seeds. If you have the Bedrock edition, here are some of the best Minecraft Pocket Edition seeds that work with that version. There’s plenty to keep you busy exploring, but there’s always something new to find, so why not try our best Minecraft maps? Or perhaps our top Minecraft servers or Minecraft Shaders. Oh, and don’t forget to equip some brilliant Minecraft skins before you head out. Anyway, we’ll leave you to it; there’s plenty more Redstone we need to dig up, and this pick-axe won’t swing itself.
