Seed: 712262452098460

  • Spawn: 50, -300
  • Biomes: Cherry Grove, Plains

Once you spawn on the ocean shore, build a boat and travel across the ocean biome to the south. At coordinates -1050, 950 you'll find an outstanding view that includes a double village and some cherry blossom trees.

What really strikes us in this Minecraft seed is the fact that one of the villages occupies a really deep lake with a sinkhole in the middle, which opens up lots of opportunities.

Seed: 6946123863878399

  • Spawn: 50, 100
  • Biomes: Forest, Ocean

Woodland mansion and island village at spawn!

This is another remarkable seed, where you might want to start your survival game, as it basically has everything you need.

What makes it special is that islands with structures are separated here, giving you an advantage when it comes to fighting hostile mobs.

Seed: 9418228204

  • Spawn: 50, -50
  • Biomes: Jagged Peaks, Meadow

You'll spawn right inside the mountain ring that has village inside of it, which is very rare, at least that's what we've been experiencing thus far.

Once you have armor and weapons, you can walk outside the ring end explore the outer world, which leads to a couple of other villages at coordinates 350, -300 and 650, -150.

Seed: 694200000042445055

  • Spawn: 50, 50
  • Biomes: Jungle, Plains, Ocean

Island village with blacksmith and ocean monument at spawn!

We really enjoyed this Minecraft seed due to the fact that it has a sparse jungle biome mixed with plains, making it a rather exotic location.

The ocean monument nearby is a good source of gold, and there's a shipwreck with a treasure chest right next to it in the water.

  • Spawn: 50, 50
  • Biomes: Jungle, Stony Peaks

Do you like to live on the edge? If the answer is yes, then you'll absolutely love this seed that spawns you right inside the cliffside village.

There's also an ancient city under the village, which adds to the extreme survival conditions of this exciting seed.

  • Spawn: 50, 50
  • Biomes: Desert

Spawn on the lakeshore in the middle of the desert that has a zombie village stranded right in the middle of it.

The lake is pretty deep, and there's also a normal village nearby at coordinates 50, -250. If you need loot, travel eastwards to coordinates 350, -300 for a nice desert temple.

Seed: -3420545121711234653

  • Spawn: 350, 800
  • Biomes: Mushroom Island, Ocean

Once you spawn on the ocean shore, you need to travel in the northern direction towards the coordinates 50, 50 to find a relatively small mushroom island that has the most unexpected feature: a landlocked ocean monument.

You'll find a few more ocean monuments around this island, so there's plenty of points to explore.

Seed: -6568528670469225251

  • Spawn: 150, 300
  • Biomes: Various

Here's the perfect survival seed that will spawn you right next to a village that stands amidst a rich biome diversity, including plains, jungle, desert, badlands, and forest.

We've also found an ancient city at coordinates 200, 600, and trail ruins at coordinates 750, 250.

Seed: 536559162546858287

  • Spawn: -150, 250
  • Biomes: Desert, Ocean

There's always a chance to spawn in the middle of the ocean, but once you find a village, it goes much easier.

Here you spawn next to a desert island village at coordinates 150, 250 that has surface shipwreck stuck amidst the huts. But we're not complaining, as additional loot is always welcome.

Seed: -1207615013449943960

  • Spawn: 50, 50
  • Biomes: Plains, Forest, Jagged Peaks

A life in the mountains can be tough, but this survival Minecraft seed has so much to offer that you'll have no trouble adapting. Here's what you'll find:

  1. Mountain village: -250, 300
  2. Plains village: 300, 400
  3. Woodland mansion: -850, 350
  4. Trail ruins: -800, -250

Seed: -6182176112093490089

  • Spawn: 50, -50
  • Biomes: Badlands, Desert

Badlands is arguably the hardest biome for survival, but when it's combined with desert, the stakes go up really fast.

But you can ease your gameplay by traveling to coordinates 300, -750, where you'll find a village on the border of badlands and desert. It'll give you some solid support for sure.

Seed: 8101124859074720264

  • Spawn: 50, 50
  • Biomes: Plains, Cherry Grove

The area at spawn has around a dozen villages within a thousand block radius, but the most interesting one is located at coordinates -350, -700.

Once you arrive, you'll see a zombie village on a cliffside surrounded by cherry blossom trees. Now that's a really unusual site to fight zombies!

Seed: -4380876537524611594

  • Spawn: -50, -50
  • Biomes: Snowy Taiga, Grove

Have you ever seen a fully exposed basement of an igloo? Well, here's your chance at spawn, as you'll find an igloo on a frozen lake with its basement completely submerged in the water.

The closest village is located to the west at coordinates -850, 250, and we've also found ruin trails at coordinates -200, -450.

Seed: -1418473149

  • Spawn: 50, 50
  • Biomes: Meadow, Forest, Plains

There are three villages and an exposed ruin portal at spawn!

The area is rather vast, so you could have trouble finding them all, so here are the coordinates to all the villages:

  1. -250, 200
  2. 50, 300
  3. 150, -150

The coordinates to the exposed ruined portal are 50, 150.

  • Spawn: 50, 50
  • Biomes: Frozen Peak, Forest, Plains

If you enjoy surviving in the mountains, but you'd prefer to have more water sources, then here's a seed with an entire mountain lake and a village right at spawn.

Right under the frozen mountains, there's an access to the ancient city, so be sure to check it out, too.

  • Spawn: 50, 50
  • Biomes: Plains

Are you tired of digging and mining? Well, here's the seed that doesn't require any of those things, as you get an exposed zombie dungeon and an open cave right next to a village that stands at coordinates 1200, 900.

All you need to do here is hop inside the dungeon during daytime, and loot the treasure chest that's inside.

Seed: -2612031576208047865

  • Spawn: 50, 50
  • Biomes: Plains

On the other hand, if you do enjoy digging and mining to find some really special and rare things, then here's a great opportunity for you.

As soon as you spawn, go to coordinates -165, -165 and start digging until you arrive at the most unusual dungeon that has not one but two mob spawners inside, including spiders and zombies.

Seed: 77424241253

  • Spawn: 50, -50
  • Biomes: Forest, Ocean

Having an entire forest on a survival island is such a luck, but this seed offers two types of forest at spawn and a village.

There's also an ocean monument at coordinates 150, 300, and a mushroom island a bit further to the east at coordinates 850, 500.

Seed: 6043360516400093451

  • Spawn: 50, 50
  • Biomes: Forest, Meadow

It can be really tricky to find the right balance of convenience and challenge in the same seed, but the combo of a village and a woodland mansion at spawn perfectly fits the description.

On one hand, you have all the resources you need, and on the other, you have to be constantly aware of the hostile mobs nearby.

Seed: -3420545469178270849

  • Spawn: 50, 50
  • Biomes: Jungle, Ocean

Hollow islands are truly rare in Minecraft, but here you spawn on such an island with jungle on top and an ocean monument nearby.

The interior of the island isn't exactly empty but consists of lush caves biome, which lead directly to the ancient city underneath.
