How to Teleport in Minecraft

Learn how to quickly traverse the world of Minecraft in both Survival and Creative modes using teleport.

The world of Minecraft is potentially limitless, which means that you can never explore it in its entirety. This also means that you will miss out on a huge chunk of its resources. However, there is one trick you can use to jump to any coordinates in a blink of an eye. We're here to help you learn how to teleport.

Below you will find instructions on teleportation for all versions of Minecraft, including cheats and commands.

How to Teleport in Minecraft Survival Mode

If you don't want to use cheats, you need to obtain an Ender Pearl to teleport in Minecraft. This item cannot be crafted, so you need to look for it either in Stronghold chests or by killing Endermen mobs.

We have guides on that here and here

When you have an Ender Pearl in your possession, you can throw it wherever you wish to teleport to, and then use one of the following actions:

  • Java Edition: Right-click.
  • Pocket Edition: Tap where Ender Pearl lands.
  • PS3/PS4: Press "L2" button.
  • Xbox 360/Xbox One: Press "LT" button.
  • Wii U/Switch: Press "ZL" button.

How to Teleport in Creative Mode

Method 1: For PC and Mobile

In Creative Mode you can use cheats, so make sure that they are activated in the game settings. This applies to Minecraft Java Edition, Bedrock, and Pocket Edition.

When your cheats are activated, you can teleport to any coordinates by following this procedure:

  1. Press "T" to open the console
  2. Type in "/tp x y z"
  3. Press Enter

The "x y z" values correspond to the coordinates of your choice. For example, if you want to teleport to coordinates 100, 75, -100, then type in "/tp 100 75 -100".

Method 2: For Consoles

Unfortunately, on console versions of Minecraft, you can't teleport to any coordinates. You can only teleport to another player in multiplayer mode.

Follow these steps, if you want to teleport to another player:

  1. Go to Game Options menu
  2. Select Host Priveleges option
  3. Press "B" on Xbox 360/Xbox One or "circle" on PS3/PS4
  4. Load the game
  5. Press "X" on Xbox 360/Xbox One or "PS" on PS3/PS4 
  6. Select Host Options
  7. Press Teleport to Player

Lastly, choose your friend's name in the list, and you will be immediately teleported to their coordinates.
