Minecraft 1.20: Best Desert Seeds List

Seed: 3201901650831491932

  • Spawn: 50, -50
  • Biomes: Various

In this seed you’ll spawn in a gorgeous area on the lake with a desert village on the cliffside that has a surface shipwreck and access to lush caves.

What made this one especially cool for me was the access to a very rare woodland badlands area right behind the village. There’s also a small patch of jungle and lots of water, so basically everything you need for a survival game.

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

An island is the perfect foundation for a survival game in Minecraft. Here you get a village, a desert temple, and a pillager outpost all at the same island that you spawn on.

On top of that, there’s another island with a desert village nearby at coordinates -450, -200. This allows you to breed camels by bringing both villages together.

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

Once you spawn on the edge of the badlands biome, you’ll see a desert village and the border of the jungle biome in front.

But I was especially surprised to find so many ancient cities in this area, and I counted at least seven within a 1000-block radius. I also found trail ruins at coordinates 650, 200, and a jungle temple at coordinates 650, 750.

  • Spawn: -200, 50
  • Biomes: Desert, Badlands, Ocean

Right after you spawn on a desert island, look to your left, and you’ll see a tall desert island with a village on top, surrounded by coral reefs.

If you go further to the east, you’ll soon reach the coast of the mainland, which has four structures in the same area at the following coordinates:

  • Ocean Monument: 200, -400
  • Ancient City: 500, -250
  • Jungle Temple: 500, -200
  • Trail Ruins: 650, -150

Seed: 45543

  • Spawn: -800, -50
  • Biomes: Desert, Badlands

Here’s a desert seed for all the Minecraft speedrun enthusiasts, as it spawns you very close to the stronghold. You can find it at coordinates -1350, 350, which is only 500 blocks from spawn.

There’s also a village nearby at coordinates -1000, 250, and a desert temple with a desert well at coordinates -1350, 500.

Seed: 18692533

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

If you prefer the mangrove swamp biome, then here’s an excellent opportunity for you to combine it with desert and island survival in the ocean.

I found this seed to be truly deserted and quite hard, as there’s nothing around for many hundreds of blocks. The closest mainland village can be found only at coordinates -750, -750.

Seed: 462057889715

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

In case you don’t like the ocean too much, then you can try this survival world that spawns you right in the middle of the mangrove sea with a tiny desert in the middle of it all.

Note that the mangrove swamp biome stretches as much as 1300 blocks from east to west and almost 1000 blocks from north to south.

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

Some Minecraft players may find the presence of mangrove trees too easy for them, so I found this magical little island for all the fans of true hardcore survival.

What makes it a little bit easier is the village, which has a single farm. But there’s also an ocean monument nearby at coordinates -200, 50.

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

Often, you can find some really deep craters in the middle of the badlands biomes, it’s not everyday you find one with a village inside it. Well, this seed spawns you right inside such a crater.

The rest of the area is completely deserted for many hundreds of blocks, but there’s an exposed mineshaft next to a village for quick access to some good loot.

Seed: -8384005904635731387

  • Spawn: -150, 300
  • Biomes: Desert, Badlands, Ocean

The last seed on our list is another island with a village, but this island is much larger than all the previous ones.

I’d suggest building a boat and traveling to coordinates -550, 650, where you’ll find an underwater cave. It’ll lead you straight into the abandoned mineshaft where you can get all the loot you need.

Those are the best desert seeds for Minecraft 1.20. Stay tuned for more Minecraft tips and tricks articles right here.
