Top 20 Best Desert Seeds in Minecraft 1.20.4

  • Spawn: X: 50 Z: 50
  • Biomes: Desert, Jungle.

Raiding a temple is a tremendous opportunity, but getting two or even three temples at spawn is a jackpot. At coordinates X: 100 Z: 150, there’s a desert temple with a village, and at coordinates X: 350 Z: 50, there’s another temple with an exposed ruined portal.

  • Spawn: X: 50 Z: 50
  • Biomes: Desert.

Underground structures, like zombie dungeons, hardly ever spawn on the surface. One such uncovered dungeon can be seen directly beneath the desert village at coordinates X: 550 Z: 150. It’s a mob farming facility as well as a quick loot source.

  • Spawn: X: 50 Z: -50
  • Biomes: Various.

This seed will be a great help if you want a wide range of biomes with unique village layouts and bare terrain. I found an exposed shipwreck here and lush caves that open out next to the village at coordinates X: 150 Z: 50. The remaining topography is made up of several biomes, such as badlands, forest, jungle, and desert.

  • Spawn: X: 50 Z: 50
  • Biomes: Desert, Ocean

There are three islands in this seed, and you’ll spawn on one of them. Each island has a village. The first one also features a pillager outpost and a desert temple. The second one is located at coordinates X: -450 Z: -200, and the third one is visible at coordinates X: 650 Z: 650.

  • Spawn: X: 50 Z: 50
  • Biomes: Mangrove Swamp, Desert

This seed makes the tiny village at spawn look like an island in a green sea, but it’s actually a small patch of desert biome lost in the middle of the giant mangrove swamp. It will take you an entire 500 blocks before you reach any of the edges of this massive biome. So build yourself a sturdy boat and travel on!

Seed: 18692533

  • Spawn: X: 50 Z: -50
  • Biomes: Mangrove Swamp, Desert, Ocean

Check out this Minecraft seed for a desert village on a mangrove island surrounded by coral reefs at spawn if you enjoy unique settings. Note that this is a truly isolated spawn, and there’s nothing except salty water for many hundreds of blocks. The closest village on the mainland can be seen at coordinates X: -750 Z: -800.

Seed: -6182176112093490089

Desert village and badlands in Minecraft

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

Arguably the hardest biome to survive in is the badlands, but add a desert biome to the mix and the stakes quickly rise. But you can ease your gameplay by traveling to coordinates X: 300 Z: -750, where you’ll find a village on the border of badlands and desert. It’ll give you some solid support, for sure.

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

Although it’s always possible to spawn in the middle of the ocean, it’s considerably harder to spawn on an island. Here, you spawn next to a desert island village at coordinates X: 150 Z: 250 that has a surface shipwreck stuck amidst the huts. But we’re not complaining, as additional loot is always welcome.

  • Spawn: X: 150 Z: 300
  • Biomes: Various

This is the ideal survival seed, as it spawns you close to a village surrounded by a diverse range of biomes, such as plains, jungle, desert, badlands, and forest. I also found an ancient city at coordinates X: 200 Z: 600, and trail ruins at coordinates X: 750 Z: 250.

  • Spawn: X: 50 Z: 50
  • Biomes: Desert

Spawn on the lakeshore in the middle of a desert with a zombie village stuck there. The lake is pretty deep, and there’s also a normal village nearby at coordinates X: 50 Z: -250. If you need loot, travel eastwards to coordinates X: 350 Z: -300 for a nice desert temple.

Seed: -8167892851092212087

  • Spawn: X: 50 Z: 50
  • Biomes: Desert

The collision of two structures is one of the rarest bugs in Minecraft, and this seed has exactly that. Go to coordinates X: -200 Z: -350 to see it. Fortunately, there are also two villages nearby at coordinates X: -450 Z: -250 and X: 150 Z: -250.

Seed: 51136579215

  • Spawn: X: 50 Z: 50
  • Biomes: Badlands, Desert

Some seeds are so great that you don’t even mind if they present a challenge. That’s the case with this seed that spawned me right in the badlands crater with a desert village on the bottom. That’s a really unique situation, and be sure that there’s nothing else around for many hundreds of blocks. So, while it may be beautiful, it’s also tricky to survive!

  • Spawn: X: 50 Z: -100
  • Biomes: Jungle, Desert, Ocean

What truly grabbed my attention as I spawned on this beautiful survival island with a desert village was the nearby pillager outpost on a tiny neighboring island. It’s really unusual how sometimes Minecraft distributes structures, creating the most exciting gameplay scenarios.

  • Spawn: X: 100 Z: -100
  • Biomes: Various

A village in the badlands and a desert well await you as you spawn at coordinates X: 304 Z: -304 and an ocean monument in the lake at coordinates X: 152 Z: 88. Additionally, there’s an exposed mineshaft near spawn and another village at coordinates X: -208 Z: -304.

  • Spawn: X: -50 Z: 50
  • Biomes: Various

While it’s possible to locate one or two villages in the same biome at spawn, it’s not common to see three villages spread across various biomes. Fortunately, seeds like this do exist, and I strongly recommend checking them out. There are also trail ruins really close at coordinates X: 248 Z: 136.

Seed: 983557080637982880

Desert village and badlands in Minecraft

  • Spawn: X: 300 Z: -100
  • Biomes: Badlands

You’ll find a charming desert village on a badlands island in the center of the lake when you first spawn in the forest biome, if you travel to coordinates X: 704 Z: 224. There’s also an exposed mineshaft right across the village, which is a great source of gold.

Seed: 58350

  • Spawn: X: 50 Z: 350
  • Biomes: Desert, Ocean

As soon as you spawn at the entrance of the pillager outpost, that village on a desert island can easily save your life. Once you reach the village, keep swimming in the eastern direction until you reach an ocean monument at coordinates X: 728 Z: 344.

  • Spawn: X: 50 Z: 50
  • Biomes: Desert

Imagine spawning at the base of a lava-filled cave and finding yourself in a zombie village. If you have the willpower to load this seed, then yes, that kind of scenario is real. Fortunately, there’s an opening in the cavern right above the village. I’d suggest using gravel blocks to climb out of the cave, or you could stay and see if you can survive down there. Either way, this seed is super unique!

  • Spawn: X: 0 Z: 0
  • Biomes: Desert

Although a survival game in the desert biome might not be the best or simplest to play in, this seed features two villages with two desert temples close to spawn at coordinates X: -192 Z: 160 and X: 64 Z: 256. It’s a real jackpot, as each temple holds four treasure chests for a total of eight. That’s a lot of loot right there!

  • Spawn: X: 0 Z: 0
  • Biomes: Desert, Jungle

At spawn, there’s a jungle temple, a desert village, and a desert temple! Even if you don’t like desert biomes, this is a really great seed. There’s a ton of loot in here and another jungle temple with trail ruins at coordinates X: -216 Z: 696.
