Minecraft: Top 30 Best Seeds List for May 2024

Seed: 1040934860

Desert island village in Minecraft
Screenshot by GameSkinny
  • Spawn: X: -112 Z: -128
  • Biomes: Desert, Badlands, Ocean

Spawn on top of a massive badlands island with a large desert village on top of it. But this is the wooded badlands variant, which is covered in trees. The island is surrounded by the warm ocean, which produces a rich coral reef at its base. When exploring the island, I discovered that it’s actually hollow inside, with lush caves spreading everywhere. The nearest ocean monument that I could find is located at coordinates X: -200 Z: -744.

Seed: 1000000000017567643

Cherry grove village in Minecraft

  • Spawn: X: 0 Z: 0
  • Biomes: Plains, Cherry Grove

Once you spawn, walk southward to coordinates X: -272 Z: 352, where you’ll find a village on the bottom of a large crater surrounded by cherry blossom trees. I also spotted another village to the east at coordinates X: 256 Z: 544, but this one isn’t as beautiful. If you like to explore the underground world, then I suggest you check out not one but three ancient cities in this area at coordinates X: 584 Y: -51 Z: 56, X: 776 Y: -51 Z: 216, and X: 808 Y: -51 Z: 424.

Seed: 795741333306778779

Lake village in Minecraft

  • Spawn: X: 0 Z: 0
  • Biomes: Plains, Forest

This tiny village sits on a small island in the middle of the lake at coordinates X: 224 Z: 160. There’s also an exposed ruined portal, which can take you straight to the nether fortress at coordinates X: 219 Z: -213. To the south of this village, I located another one that stands on the snowy slopes at coordinates X: 176 Z: 576. But there’s a pillager outpost nearby, so come in prepared to fight some pillagers.

Seed: 2645093209053901796

Glacier village in Minecraft

  • Spawn: X: -80 Z: 144
  • Biomes: Plains, Forest, Frozen Peaks

If you don’t mind taking a short trip to the south, then I can show you a very rare village that sits on top of the frozen peak at coordinates X: 320 Z: 1,728. The village is pretty large, going all the way to the top of the hill, which is hollow inside. But you’ll also find plenty of villages around spawn if you’re not ready to traverse over a thousand blocks just yet. Particularly, check out villages at coordinates X: -336 Z: 256 and X: 400 Z: 32.

Seed: 2962313470137474983

Extremely tall witch hut in Minecraft
Screenshot by GameSkinny
  • Spawn: X: 0 Z: 0
  • Biomes: Various

Anomalies do occur in Minecraft! Here’s an unusually tall witch hut at spawn that looks more like a tripod from The War of the Worlds. The legs are extremely tall and reach way over a hundred blocks. Note that this isn’t a Large Biomes mode or anything but an ordinary vanilla glitch. There’s another witch hut nearby at coordinates X: 184 Z: -168, but this one is perfectly normal. The nearest village can be found at coordinates X: -368 Z: 368.

Seed: 3884300698835402744

Cliff cherry village in Minecraft
Screenshot by GameSkinny
  • Spawn: X: 0 Z: 0
  • Biomes: Plains, Forest, Cherry Grove

I spawned in the thick of the cherry blossom forest when I saw an entire village descending downhill. There’s also a huge ravine with quick access to mining resources. On the other side of the cherry grove, I located an igloo at coordinates X: -264 Z: -168, but unfortunately, it doesn’t have the basement room.

Seed: 10696049115005156

Village with six farms in Minecraft
Screenshot by GameSkinny
  • Spawn: X: 0 Z: 0
  • Biomes: Plains, Forest, Jungle

The village at spawn has an unusually large number of farms. But more than that, I discovered that there are at least four abandoned mineshafts right under the village at various levels of depth. This is a truly lucky find, taking into consideration that there are no other villages or sources of loot for many hundreds of blocks around spawn.

Seed: 4202707030482069714

Village in the biome diversity in Minecraft
Screenshot by GameSkinny
  • Spawn: X: 0 Z: 32
  • Biomes: Various

If you enjoy a rich diversity of biomes, then I wouldn’t look any further than this seed. It offers a village with an exposed ruined portal that stands on the crossroads of such biomes as plains, jungle, desert, savanna, and badlands. There are two more villages at coordinates X: -304 Z: 48 and X: -432 Z: -384, and a desert temple at coordinates X: -328 Z: -344.

Seed: -2905666184584101000

Lush cave mineshaft in Minecraft
Screenshot by GameSkinny
  • Spawn: X: -48 Z: -16
  • Biomes: Taiga

It’s nothing special when you find structures in unusual biomes on the surface. But when you find something like that underneath, then it’s a really rare occasion. Here, you can find a while abandoned mineshaft inside a huge lush cave with waterfalls at coordinates X: 86 Z: -94. Also, don’t forget to check out two villages at coordinates X: -320 Z: -144 and X: -464 Z: 32.

Seed: -4373048530227731700

River valley village in Minecraft
Screenshot by GameSkinny
  • Spawn: X: -48 Z: -32
  • Biomes: Plains, Forest, Cherry Grove

One of my favorite locations for a village is the river valley. In this seed, I found one at spawn, and it even has a blacksmith. Another cool thing that I noticed is an exposed dripstone cave just north of spawn. This is a really great start for any survival game!

Seed: 38666859

Windswept savanna island village in Minecraft
Screenshot by GameSkinny
  • Spawn: X: 48 Z: 32
  • Biomes: Windswept Savanna, Ocean

Spawn on a beautiful windswept savanna island with a large village and an exposed ruined portal at coordinates X: 168 Z: 8. Although I spawned on top of the cliff, I had no trouble going down into the village. I also discovered an ocean monument nearby at coordinates X: 360 Z: 8.

Seed: 1914824789546162560

Super tall mansion in Minecraft

  • Spawn: X: 0 Z: 0
  • Biomes: Forest, Swampland

Have you ever wondered if it’s possible to spawn inside a woodland mansion? The answer is yes, and the proof is this Minecraft seed. The trick is to have a super-tall mansion at spawn, which is exactly what you get here. Note that the closest village that I could find stands at coordinates X: -1,312 Z: -288.

Seed: 82944

Coral reef island village in Minecraft
Screenshot by GameSkinny
  • Spawn: X: -320 Z: 64
  • Biomes: Desert, Ocean

I spawned on the ocean shore to the west of one of the most beautiful desert village islands I’ve ever seen. The reason why it’s so cool and rare is the presence of the coral reefs surrounding the island at coordinates X: 720 Z: -480. If you travel in the opposite direction, then you’ll spot another village at coordinates X: -1,248 Z: -144.

Seed: -6851116161706244347

Double acacia village in Minecraft
Screenshot by GameSkinny
  • Spawn: X: 16 Z: 0
  • Biomes: Mangrove Swamp, Savanna

Here’s one of my personal favorite seeds that I’ve found, which spawns you right in the thick of the mangrove swamp. But as soon as I reached its border, I stumbled upon not one but two acacia villages at coordinates X: -176 Z: 112 and X: 16 Z: 208.

Seed: 2482490754905255652

Lava pool desert temple in Minecraft
Screenshot by GameSkinny
  • Spawn: X: 0 Z: 0
  • Biomes: Desert

You’ll spawn on the edge of a deep ravine with a lava pool on the bottom and a huge surprise in the form of a desert temple. It’s funny how Minecraft generates structures at times — in some of the most unusual places. Note how an entire cavern is covered with lush greenery.

Seed: 877840283344160110

Quadruple ocean monument in Minecraft
Screenshot by GameSkinny
  • Spawn: X: -224 Z: 448
  • Biomes: Ocean, Mushroom Island

It’s a rare occurrence to find a double structure in the same spot. Finding three structures is extremely rare. But quadruple instances are almost unheard of. But this seed has such an extremely rare phenomenon when four ocean monuments spawn around a tiny mushroom island at coordinates X: 392 Z: 408.

Seed: 3940649678949694

Double cherry grove village in Minecraft
Screenshot by GameSkinny
  • Spawn: X: 0 Z: 0
  • Biomes: Plains, Cherry Grove

There are two gorgeous villages at spawn, with a nice river valley and a massive patch of cherry blossom trees. I also spotted a pillager outpost to the south at coordinates X: -224 Z: 528 and trail ruins at coordinates X: -136 Z: 616.

Seed: 3087887532896734404

Infinite mineshaft in Minecraft

  • Spawn: X: 0 Z: 0
  • Biomes: Forest

If you’ve never seen an infinite mineshaft in Minecraft, then here’s your chance. This rare glitch occurs right at spawn in this seed, so you don’t have to search for too long. Just load the seed, dig down, and witness an endless abandoned mineshaft in all its glory. Oh, and endless loot, too!

Seed: 5318760864792538681

Deep pit village in Minecraft
Screenshot by GameSkinny
  • Spawn: X: 0 Z: 0
  • Biomes: Plains, Meadow

Cliff villages are quite common in Minecraft, but I was lucky to discover a pit village at coordinates X: 784 Z: -240. Basically, you can set up your living area at the bottom of a giant pit, which may serve as a protective mechanism against night mobs.

Seed: 6662539672648273587

Double dungeon in Minecraft
Screenshot by GameSkinny
  • Spawn: X: -384 Z: -160
  • Biomes: Plains, Ocean

Spawn on a tiny island in the ocean, not too far away from the mainland. Then, swim to coordinates X: -235 Z: -260, which is just a tad to the north of the island. If you can, dig down, and soon, you’ll reach a very rare double dungeon with two mob spawners and four treasure chests.

Seed: 407294291300320308

Ocean ruins village in Minecraft
Screenshot by GameSkinny
  • Spawn: X: 0 Z: 0
  • Biomes: Plains

This time, I spawned on the ocean shore with a village that has quite a challenge: there’s a whole bunch of ocean ruins nearby. In the day, they don’t threaten your villagers, as all drowned mobs burn under the sun just like zombies. But at night, I recommend using the Depth Strider enchantment to deal with them.

Seed: 1546806461173520609

Floating island village in Minecraft

  • Spawn: X: 240 Z: 144
  • Biomes: Taiga, Windswept Savanna

Here’s one for those who love floating islands and lush landscapes. In this seed, you spawn next to a taiga village and an exposed ruined portal at coordinates X: 336 Z: 336. The entire area is surrounded by overhangs and floating islands, which can reach as high as 250 points.

Seed: 4276905504

Plains island village in Minecraft

  • Spawn: X: -144 Z: 544
  • Biomes: Plains, Ocean

How about your own personal, naturally-generated turtle farm on an island? Check out this seed for a cool little island village at spawn that has an entire population of turtles breeding on the beach. It’s an easy start for a survival game, so be sure to try this one.

Seed: 201000038

Tiny cherry grove village in Minecraft
Screenshot by GameSkinny
  • Spawn: X: 0 Z: 0
  • Biomes: Plains, Cherry Grove

You’ll spawn next to a small village near a patch of cherry blossom trees, which grows larger and larger the further to the south you move. If you do so, you’ll find another village at coordinates X: 304 Z: 624. But you may also want to check out an ancient city at coordinates X: 632 Y: -51 Z: 232.

Seed: -7358099815354704756

Solo woodland mansion in Minecraft
Screenshot by GameSkinny
  • Spawn: X: 352 Z: 208
  • Biomes: Forest

Woodland mansions almost exclusively spawn on the mainland, but I found one that spawns in the water right next to a deep, exposed, lush cave at coordinates X: 248 Z: 472. The closest village that I could spot is located at coordinates X: 832 Z: 544. But I must warn you that it’s a zombie village.

Seed: 6597119112593394822

Cliffside cherry grove village in Minecraft
Screenshot by GameSkinny
  • Spawn: X: 0 Z: 0
  • Biomes: Plains, Cherry Grove

Spawn on the border of a cherry grove biome with a village on its opposite side at coordinates X: 48 Z: 160. What makes this a great seed is the presence of the blacksmith in the village. On top of that, check out another one at coordinates X: 240 Z: -272.

Seed: -2370670073286384898

Ruined portal village in Minecraft
Screenshot by GameSkinny
  • Spawn: X: 0 Z: 16
  • Biomes: Plains, Forest

The easiest and most convenient way to reach the Nether is to find an exposed ruined portal. Well, here’s a good opportunity, as I found one at coordinates X: -256 Z: 128, standing right next to a village. The portal will take you straight to the Nether Fortress.

Seed: -1518347531591691130

Three house village in Minecraft
Screenshot by GameSkinny
  • Spawn: X: 32 Z: -64
  • Biomes: Plains, Forest

Not all Minecraft players want to have an easy start. If you’re looking for a small village with only a few huts and a single farm, then be sure to check it out at coordinates X: 400 Z: 320. It gives a solid start to a survival game, but it doesn’t make things too easy.

Seed: 2332898208183850082

Exposed mineshaft in Minecraft
Screenshot by GameSkinny
  • Spawn: X: 336 Z: -240
  • Biomes: Snowy Taiga

The overworld is a fun place to start, but what if you could start from the bottom? In this seed, there’s a massive exposed abandoned mineshaft at spawn with lots of mobs, loot, and resources. But be sure to move around carefully due to the wide flow of lava.

Seed: -3722150886991683528

Igloo with snow village in Minecraft

  • Spawn: X: 352 Z: 160
  • Biomes: Snowy Plains

Lastly, here’s a fun little seed for those who like snowy biomes. This seed will spawn you next to a village and an igloo with a basement at coordinates X: 616 Z: -248. You can easily set up a base inside the igloo, which stands on top of the hill.
