Top 20 Best Survival Island Seeds in Minecraft

  • Biomes: Taiga, Forest

This survival island seed kicks off our Top 20 best survival island seeds in Minecraft by offering a pre-built base at spawn and a woodland mansion with a village, where you can loot everything you want. Once you defeat all the villagers in the mansion, you can claim it as your own palace.

It’s worth noting that there are plenty of bookshelves inside the mansion, so stack up on those books for enchanting and crafting. Also, be sure to check out the ocean monument at coordinates X: -168 Z: 168.

  • Spawn: 50, 50
  • Biomes: Various

In this island seed, you’ll spawn on a large atoll covered with jungle trees and surrounded by stony peaks. There’s a jungle temple on the side of the cliff at coordinates X: 120 Z: 152, and an exposed ruined portal right below at coordinates X: 152 Z: 72.

I also recommend checking out the smaller island to the south, which is made of wooded badlands that lead straight into an abandoned mineshaft at coordinates X: 8 Z: 344.

Seed: 24434696

  • Biomes: Plains

Here, you’ll spawn on the ocean shore. Walk toward coordinates X: 208 Z: 32, where you’ll see a small survival island with a village that stands right next to an ocean monument. I suggest you prepare well, as you’ll have to defeat the leader guardian first if you want to loot the gold from the monument. To the south of the island, you’ll also find a tiny mushroom island.

  • Biomes: Forest

Hollow islands are some of the best when it comes to setting up a well-protected base. But this survival island has a whole exposed lush cave at spawn, which is so large that you could fit an entire settlement in it. The top of the island is covered with thick forest, so you’ll have plenty of materials to build with. I also found the closest ocean monument at coordinates X: -248 Z: 152.

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

Starting on a survival island is a challenge on its own, but this seed is a cool addition that may spice things up a bit: a pillager outpost. Fortunately, you’ll find plenty of iron and diamonds in the mines underneath the island, so you’ll have tools to deal with those pesky pillagers. If you build a boat and travel to coordinates X: 537 Z: 601, then you’ll find a buried treasure with some excellent loot.

Seed: -3420545469178270849

  • Biomes: Jungle

For this one, you’ll spawn on a tall jungle island with nothing but an ocean monument and underwater portal nearby. However, if you dig deep enough, you’ll find an entrance into the ancient city at coordinates X: 24 Y: -51 Z: 120. There, you can collect some highly valuable items and bring them back to your private island.

Here’s a seed for all the speedrun enthusiasts who want to finish Minecraft as quickly as possible. Here, you’ll spawn on the island, with a village and a ruined portal nearby.

But under the village, you’ll find a stairway into the stronghold at coordinates X: 916 Z: 884. The End portal can take you straight to the Ender Dragon, and you can collect the rarest item in Minecraft: the Dragon Egg.

  • Biomes: Jungle, Stony Peaks

Sometimes, you’re lucky to spawn not on one but on several survival islands, as is the case with this Minecraft island seed. Here, you have one giant atoll in the center with a giant hollow cave underneath, perfect for building your base. A smaller island to the east has a jungle temple on top at coordinates X: 328 Z: -136. Lastly, there’s a super tiny isle to the north, which can be used as the base for your watchtower.

Here’s another challenging island seed that pits villagers against the villagers from the woodland mansion at spawn. Fortunately, there are not one but two hidden treasures at coordinates X: -23 Z: 137 and X: 89 Z: 41. These items will help you deal with hostile neighbors so you can enjoy your stay on these lush islands and build almost anything you want.

Seed: 421109587

The seed includes a cherry grove with gorgeous pink trees. To the north of the main area, I found an ocean monument at coordinates X: 184 Z: -312, and to the south, I found a village standing at coordinates X: -368 Z: 720. Cherry blossom islands are very rare, so be sure to use this seed wisely.

  • Spawn: 50, 50
  • Biomes: Shattered Savanna, Ocean

I spawned on a small survival island that boasts one of the rarest biomes in Minecraft: shattered savanna. In addition, there’s a village and an exposed ruined portal at your service. At coordinates X: 350 Z: 50, you’ll find an ocean monument with some ocean ruins nearby. For players who want to create a sort of pirate’s harbor in the middle of the ocean, this would be an excellent seed.

Seed: 43664882

  • Spawn: -100, -450
  • Biomes: Ocean, Plains

I noticed that some villages, like the one in this seed at coordinates X: 50 Z: -50, end up stranded too far out into the ocean. Thankfully, the island has some trees and a blacksmith, which becomes quite crucial in this limited survival setting. You can also find a small mushroom island at coordinates X: 250 Z: 250.

Seed: 25453357

  • Spawn: -150, -150
  • Biomes: Stone Shore, Ocean

You can find a gathering of stony islands just south of spawn, with a village bridging a few of them into a single area with an exposed ruined portal at coordinates X: -400 Z: 100. I was happy to discover that there’s also a sizable area with a forest, which offers a strong start to a survival game.

Seed: 26650979

Here’s another group of islands south of spawn, one of which also happens to have a village at coordinates X: 200 Z: 50. I also found another smaller island to the side that has a ruined portal at coordinates X: 50 Z: 350. If you get tired of all the seafaring, hop to the village on the mainland at coordinates X: -200 Z: 150.

Seed: 15039310

  • Spawn: -50, -200
  • Biomes: Icebergs

How about a survival island that transports you directly to the center of a freezing ocean, with a village totally surrounded by icebergs? Sure, it’s a bit extreme, but there’s an ocean monument nearby and some trees growing directly in the village in case you need supplies.

Seed: 8549303840

  • Spawn: X: -32 Z: 48
  • Biomes: Various

Spawn on a highly diverse survival island with a village and such biomes as swampland, windswept savanna, plains, forest, and beach. At coordinates X: 56 Z: -232, I found an ocean monument, as well as another one at coordinates X: 776 Z: -280, which is a bit to the east. If you reach the mainland in the south, then check out some nice trail ruins at coordinates X: -195 Y: 63 Z: 813.

Seed: 48703244

  • Spawn: X: 160 Z: 224
  • Biomes: Plains, Ocean

As soon as I spawned on the ocean shore, I noticed a tiny island village to the north at coordinates X: 48 Z: 0. It has no farms and only a few trees, but that’s more than enough to start a nice survival game. I couldn’t find any ocean monuments nearby or shipwrecks, but I did find trail ruins at coordinates X: 947 Y: 81 Z: 211. These are always good to raid for some rare loot.

Seed: -989814159766074

  • Spawn: X: 16 Z: 112
  • Biomes: Plains, Ocean

This survival island at spawn has a cool structure. It generates a village on its very edge, while most of its area is completely flat except for a single tree. I highly recommend this Minecraft seed for building purposes in survival island conditions. The closest village on the mainland can be seen at coordinates X: 384 Z: 720, which is to the south of where I spawned.

Seed: 8498842108436

  • Biomes: Plains, Ocean

Here’s another lone village in the ocean that’s very similar to the one before. But this time it has a shipwreck with a loot chest inside at coordinates X: 72 Z: 72 and a couple of farms ready to be harvested. So, if you found the previous seed a bit too challenging, this one should nicely fill in the missing links.

Seed: -8979023931

  • Biomes: Forest, Plains, Ocean

If you’re specifically looking to spawn on a survival island with a village, lots of trees, and the possibility of fast travel into the nether, then this seed is a must-have. There’s an exposed ruined portal in the forest that will take you straight to the spot between the two bastion remnant structures: bastion bridges at coordinates X: 176 Z: -144 and hoglin stables at coordinates X: 16 Z: 160.

That’s it for my list of the top 20 best Minecraft survival island seeds. Stay tuned for more MC tips and tricks articles here at GameSkinny.
