When it comes to Minecraft seeds, I don’t know about you, but I always find it such a missed opportunity to just let the game come up with its own random string of numbers. Why not be adventurous, and seed your world with something like “WeAreTheKnightsWhoSayNi”, or “falsified carrot”, or something? If you’re of a similar mind on this, you shouldn’t be disappointed by the amount of fun I had creating this Minecraft seeds guide.
Below you’ll find a carefully curated selection of the very best Minecraft 1.14 seeds I’ve found. Whether you’re after a particularly challenging island seed, or you want to waste no time in exploring 1.14’s new Bamboo Jungles, we’ve got a multitude of worlds for you.
Best Minecraft seeds (1.13 and 1.14) – Islands, Pyramids, Temples, and more
Because of the nature of the Minecraft 1.14 update, terrain generation between 1.13 and 1.14 is nearly identical; the only difference is that in 1.13 you won’t find the new Bamboo Jungle biomes, and there may be some changes to the generation of villages and the like. So all the below seeds will work whether you’re playing in 1.13 or 1.14.
Below you can browse all the best seeds we’ve found in Minecraft (and I hope you also have time to appreciate the sheer strangeness of my stream-of-consciousness, reference-fuelled mind when it comes to naming seeds). You can click on any of the images to view it at full size, and you can also click on the seed itself to open up a screenshot of the world I took using Amidst, which is a nifty piece of software that allows you to check out terrain and structure generation for different seeds. Amidst isn’t updated for 1.14, so it won’t show things like Bamboo Jungles, but it still gives you a great idea of what kind of world you’re looking at.
I’d also strongly encourage you to use the search bar just below to filter the seeds by typing in things like “Challenging”, or “Mushroom Biome”, or “Village”, or whatever it is that you’re after.
|Once, long ago,||Fire and Ice combine in this hostile start on the border between Frozen Ocean and scorching Desert. You'll need to travel to find trees.||Challenging, Frozen Ocean, Desert, Ice Plains, Savanna, Ocean, Mega Taiga|
|UnusualCrimping||A lovely temperate start next to Savanna, Forest, and Desert - and you'll also find a giant Mushroom Island only about 1000 blocks east from spawn.||Plains, Forest, Savanna, Mushroom Biome, Desert, Swampland, Extreme Hills|
|Mesozoic||Jungle lovers, this one's for you. A game-crashingly large Jungle start (complete with Jungle Temple a stone's throw from spawn), with Deep Oceans and a Flower Forest nearby.||Jungle, Jungle Temple, Ocean, Flower Forest, Taiga, Extreme Hills, Forest|
|island?||One of the better archipelago starts I've found. You begin on a tiny spit of land with a handful of sheep but no trees, so you'll have to quickly hop from island to island in search of better prospects.||Challenging, Island, Archipelago, Ocean, Ocean Monument|
|I am the banana king||At the centre of this Swamp-dominated landmass, not far from spawn, there sits a perfect alcove hidden inside a tiny Extreme Hills biome. Perfect for mountain bases.||Swampland, Extreme Hills, Forest, Burch Forest, Ocean, Plains, Village|
|3032979427952586570||An incredibly picturesque land, this one.

|EatAJerkPal||Not a true island start, because there's some mainland nearby. But I had to include this seed. I mean, just look at it. What a poor lonely tree, It needs some company, don't you think?||Island, Archipelago, Ocean, Ocean Monument, Swampland, Savanna, Forest|
|pineappleonpizza||Something for everyone on this expansive, diverse map, from giant snow-capped mountains to roofed forests and abandoned mineshafts. This would be a great seed for a UHC match.||Birch Forest, Forest, Extreme Hills, Sunflower Plains, Mineshaft, Flower Forest, Taiga, Desert, Swampland|
|I need a heroooo||Now this is one hell of a starting point. Surrounded by Jungle and the new Bamboo Jungles, you've also got a silly number of Villages and Jungle Temples in a few-hundred-block radius around spawn.||Jungle, Bamboo Jungle, Taiga, Extreme Hills, Plains, Jungle Temple, Village|
|15YemenRoadYemen||A great mix of Mesa and Roofed Forest, this seed gives you one of the most colourful spawns that vanilla Minecraft is capable of, while still providing plenty of trees for your first day/night.||Mesa, Roofed Forest, Extreme Hills, Ocean, Plains, Birch Forest, Savanna|
|-2561286611982351664||For those who prefer winter to summer, this start places you on a massive (but surviveable) Ice Plains biome, complete with Igloos, lakes, rivers, and more.||Ice Plains, Ice Mountains, Igloo, Ocean, Taiga, Cold Taiga, Extreme Hills|
|I'm writing this in a Starbucks||Just look at that island village. Isn't that wonderful? It's as though it was crafted by hand. Plus, tonnes of Ocean Monuments, and a Mushroom Biome not too far to the East.||Island, Archipelago, Village, Forest, Ocean Monument, Mushroom Biome, Plains|
|somethingsomethingdarkside||A long-running river separates a large forest biome from massive, cloud-height mountains. You'll also find a Swamp with a Witch Hut nearby, as well as a rich and colourful underground.||Forest, Extreme Hills, Taiga, Swampland, Birch Forest, Flower Forest, Mineshaft, Village, Witch Hut|
|Wakanda Forever||An unusual and exciting start, with just a couple of tiny islands and a handful of trees in the middle of a giant Frozen Ocean - which itself is surrounded by a colossal ring of Mesa, Desert, and Savanna biomes.||Challenging, Island, Archipelago, Frozen Ocean, Desert, Mesa, Savanna, Ocean|
|RobertUnderdunkTerwilliger||Here's a seed with a little of just about everything: a nice Roofed Forest start, with Desert to the west, a Mushroom Biome to the north, and some really nice Extreme Hills across the sea to the east.||Roofed Forest, Plains, Extreme Hills, Mushroom Biome, Desert, Swamp, Ocean|
|tali'zorah||Yes, that is indeed a Pyramid inside a Desert Village, barely 100 blocks from spawn. Opposite the Desert, you're faced with a gigantic Swamp, and patches of Forest and Extreme Hills.||Pyramid, Village, Desert, Swampland, Extreme Hills, Plains, Forest, Savanna, Mesa, Ocean|
|ResistanceIsUseless||If you're looking to rush to the Nether as quickly as possible, this is your seed. Plains, Forest, and Desert - with a surface lava pool, Pyramid, and Village all in spitting distance from spawn. Oh, and mineshafts everywhere.||Pyramid, Village, Desert, Mesa, Plains, Forest, Savanna, Mineshaft, Lava|

|SnakesAndBladders||Not the most difficult island spawn in the world thanks to its generous supply of wood, and the fact that the mainland isn't TOO far away... But still enough to heighten the challenge a bit.||Challenging, Island, Shipwreck, Archipelago, Frozen Ocean, Forest, Savanna, Lava|
|Inconceivable!||A sprawling Jungle, rife with Bamboo, is bordered by a Savanna (with village) and some fantastic mountain formations in this diverse and colourful world.||Jungle, Bamboo Jungle, Savanna, Village, Extreme Hills, Desert|
