I’ve always considered the default Minecraft seeds to be such wasted opportunities. Why leave the game to dredge up some meaningless string of numbers, when you could instead seed your world with something like “WeAreTheKnightsWhoSayNi”, or “I love you 3000”, or some other excellent film or TV reference? 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 for v1.14.
Below you’ll find a carefully curated selection of the very best Minecraft seeds for 1.14 that we’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.
Minecraft seeds 1.14 & 1.13 – best Minecraft seeds for Islands, Pyramids, Temples, and more
Due to 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 Minecraft seeds we’ve found (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 Minecraft seeds). You can click on any of the images to view it at full size.
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.

“Mesozoic” – best Minecraft seeds 1.14

“island?” – best Minecraft seeds 1.14
- Amidst screenshot link: island?
- Features: Challenging, Island, Archipelago, Ocean, Ocean Monument
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.

“EatAJerkPal” – best Minecraft seeds 1.14
- Amidst screenshot link: EatAJerkPal
- Features: Island, Archipelago, Ocean, Ocean Monument, Swampland, Savanna, Forest
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?
“pineappleonpizza” – best Minecraft seeds 1.14
- Amidst screenshot link: pineappleonpizza
- Features: Birch Forest, Forest, Extreme Hills, Sunflower Plains, Mineshaft, Flower Forest, Taiga, Desert, Swampland
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 an Ultra Hardcore (UHC) match.

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.

- Amidst screenshot link: I’m writing this in a Starbucks
- Features: Island, Archipelago, Village, Forest, Ocean Monument, Mushroom Biome, Plains
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.
“somethingsomethingdarkside” – best Minecraft seeds 1.14
- Amidst screenshot link: somethingsomethingdarkside
- Features: Forest, Extreme Hills, Taiga, Swampland, Birch Forest, Flower Forest, Mineshaft, Village, Witch Hut
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.
“Wakanda Forever” – best Minecraft seeds 1.14

This might as well be a Large Biomes world. You spawn right on the border between a gigantic Mesa and a colossal Jungle, with at least 2 Jungle Temples and 1 Shipwreck nearby.
“SnakesAndBladders” – best Minecraft seeds 1.14
- Amidst screenshot link: SnakesAndBladders
- Features: Challenging, Island, Shipwreck, Archipelago, Frozen Ocean, Forest, Savanna, Lava
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.
