Best Minecraft seed #4 as seen below, mesa taiga village with all special house types.

This is an ongoing compilation of the best Minecraft seeds. This site has many Minecraft seeds, but only a few make the cut for best Minecraft seeds.

This list has a variety of different seed types. To see seeds by type only, check out the left sidebar for Minecraft seed types. There are lists for the basic biome and structure types such as Minecraft village seeds, Minecraft island seeds, and so on.

As for versions, Minecraft seeds generally work for versions above 1.7 or below. It was Minecraft 1.7 that crucially updated the Minecraft world generator, thus making most old seeds unusable. This best Minecraft seeds list has mostly 1.7+ version Minecraft seeds, but there will be random Minecraft 1.6.4 seeds, Minecraft 1.5.2 seeds, and so on mixed in. If the seed isn't the right version, but is still above or below Minecraft 1.7, it should still work.

These Minecraft seeds only work for the Minecraft PC version.

Best Minecraft Seeds

Good Minecraft seeds aren't always easy to define. These best Minecraft seeds always have something amazing to show off, such as giant villages, cloud piercing mountains, exposed underwater strongholds, diamonds, or some other spectacular characteristic. For more information, click the pictures or titles. The numbering doesn't determine the best Minecraft seed.

Best Minecraft seed #1: Three big villages in sight of each other

Cool Minecraft seed 1.8.3 three in sight villages, diamonds, desert temple seeds.png

Minecraft 1.8.4 seed, Minecraft 1.8 seed, Minecraft 1.7.10 seed

The reason this is one of the best Minecraft seeds is because there are three fairly large Minecraft villages, all within render range of each other. This requires that the render distance be turned up to at least 15 or higher. Be careful, as turning up the render range too high can potentially crash the game.

The seed spawn for this Minecraft seed is in a small circle of plains, surrounded by savanna. There are some neat river splits where all these savannas converge at the plains junction. Off in one direction is a big savanna village by a desert.

This first Minecraft village really doesn't have any substantial buildings or houses. There are no blacksmith, no churches, no butchers. While this doesn't stop the village from having enough farms to feed an army, there aren't any rare buildings. It's also a savanna village. That's just the first village though.

Not too far off in the desert, there's a second village. This second village is ridiculously close to the first village, which is another reason this makes the best Minecraft seeds list. It's better than that however, this desert village is massive with many houses to work with. It's up on a small hill, which gives a nice view of the surrounding terrain.

A little further on in the direction of that desert village, players will find a Minecraft desert temple. This temple doesn't have anything special, other than an emerald. Players will find simply gold, iron, bones, and zombie flesh. Be careful getting down to the loot, don't step on the pressure plate at the bottom of the hole, or TNT will explode.

Next up, there's an exposed spider spawner out in the desert by the desert village. There are two chests with treasure in them. One of these chests even has a golden apple, making this one of the few Minecraft golden apple seeds. Players can also find a music disc, some gunpowder, and more.

Out in the opposite direction of all of this, there's a desert temple out in the desert with some more generic loot, two emeralds and some other junk; however, this desert temple also contains 3 diamonds! That's enough to make a diamond pick axe. That's really handy for collecting cobblestone, or getting obsidian.

Off to the side of the original village, there's a second desert village, really close like the first one. This second desert village actually has a blacksmith, but it only has apples, bread, etc. While that's not so great, the three diamonds in the temple, and all three villages being so close by, this is an amazing Minecraft seed...

Best Minecraft seed #2: Giant village island seed off the shore but out of sight

Minecraft island village seed 1.8.3 with desert island and big church dungeons diamonds.jpg

Minecraft 1.8.4 seed, Minecraft 1.8 seed

This is an epic Minecraft seed. What could be better than a giant village on an island? It's easy to see why this is on the best Minecraft seeds list. This cool Minecraft island seed has a village right in the center of it.

The initial seed spawn is over on the shore of a savanna peninsula. This peninsula actually points right at the village, which is a hundred or two blocks out in the water. It's amazing how close this island is to the start, and what it comes with.

First off, there's a barely exposed fissure near the island village. This fissure can fairly easily be broken into. Down in the fissure is a cave entrance with 15 diamonds in it. It's worth the dangerous adventure to acquire that many diamonds. Players can easily get started with enchanting tables or diamond tools thanks to this little best Minecraft seed feature.

There's also an opening to a cave with a zombie spawner off the shore of the village island. There's some interesting loot in there. Out in that same direction is a Minecraft ocean monument with gold blocks to loot. There's a second ocean monument off in a different direction with the same number of gold blocks.

This cool Minecraft seed has plenty more exposed fissures and caves at the bottom of the oceans. They're difficult to find, but some are well worth exploring. There's even a fissure that's split up into three interconnect fissures. It's confusing, but worth seeing... See more


Best Minecraft seed #3: Flower forest against an ice spike plains seed

Minecraft 1.8.3 ice plains spikes seed with flower forest in front and ocean nearby forest biome spawn.jpg

Minecraft 1.8.4 seed, Minecraft 1.8 seed

This is one of the best Minecraft seeds for ice spike plains because it spawns right by a flower forest seed. There is also an opening to the ocean right by the initial starting point.

The ice spike plains extend for a while with some pretty massive spikes. There is a normal snowy biome behind it, and somewhere out in the wilderness is another ice spike plains biome.

The flower forest is another cool Minecraft seeds feature. This little biome can rarely be found in anything but small patches. Finding a rare flower forest biome snuggled up against an ice spike plains biome is pretty rare in Minecraft.

Other than there are plenty of forests and plains to explore all around the taigas. There may even be a village or two around if players travel far enough. There aren't very many villages nearby as they cannot spawn in snowy biomes, forest biomes, taiga biomes, and more... See More


Best Minecraft seed #4: Minecraft snow and mesa village seed

Minecraft village seed taiga mesa hot cold village with plains village church blacksmith butcher.jpg

Minecraft 1.8.4 seed, Minecraft 1.8 seed, Minecraft 1.7.10 seed

This is another one of the best Minecraft seeds because of the diversity in biomes. There's a village right by a mesamesa and a snow seed. That's crazy because mesa's are hot biomes and snow is, well, cold. There's also a non-snowy taiga right out of view, a lake behind, extreme hills on the other side, and more. This is one of the diverse and cool Minecraft seeds.

Another reason this is a good seed is because the village has a blacksmith, two butchers, a church, and a library! That's pretty much everything a village could have. This is an amazing Minecraft seed with so many cool Minecraft seeds features. It's easy to see why this is one of the best Minecraft seeds.

There's so much to do, so much to explore. The mountains across the lake give a long-term adventure for mountain-goers. Anyone who likes to stay firmly on the ground could go along the snow and find forests to explore. There's also the perfectly good mesa to explore, and don't forget about getting lost in the snowy wilderness. This is one of the best Minecraft seeds for general exploration. There are so many different paths to choose and directions to go.

It's easy to get lost on such a massively diverse Minecraft seed. There's even an island nearby out in a lake. This is an exciting Minecraft seed for the world generator. It's at the split of three massive biomes, making for great diversity... See more


Best Minecraft seed #5: Exposed underwater stronghold seed with end portal room only

Minecraft 1.8.3 survival island seed stronghold underwater end portal right there multiple trees.jpg

Minecraft 1.8.4 seed, Minecraft 1.8.3 seed, Minecraft 1.8 seed

This cool Minecraft seed is one of those rare exposed underwater strongholds. This is one of the best Minecraft seeds for this reason. There are quite a few trees up on the island. This island seed / stronghold seed is really awesome.

It's extremely rare to find strongholds, especially exposed end portal rooms floating in the water. This is an awesome Minecraft seed for this reason. This underwater stronghold seed is great for any player who wants to farm ender pearls and try to go fight the ender dragon.

This is also a cool Minecraft seed for island hopping as there are many more islands nearby, and ocean monuments if played on Minecraft 1.8 or higher.

This is actually part of a giant lake, which is what 1.7+ Minecraft oceans typically are. Far enough in any direction players can find continents, and to the west there may even be some villages. This is a great Minecraft seed... See more


Best Minecraft seed #6: Minecraft 1.6.4 village island seed by exposed stronghold

Minecraft 1.6.4 seed village island by exposed stronghold above water.jpg

Minecraft 1.6.4 seed, Minecraft 1.5.2 seed

This is one of the best Minecraft seeds of 1.6.4 and before. This Minecraft seed does not work on Minecraft 1.7 and above. It may work on older versions before the 1.6.4 update.

This fun Minecraft seed has players starting off either in the water or on the edge of a hilly Minecraft island. Right nearby is another island just like this one. Upon arrival players discover a massive Minecraft village. This village has two of the biggest natural Minecraft houses. There's no blacksmith, but the village makes up for it by having huge buildings, and lots of then.

If that's not best Minecraft seeds material alone, there's an exposed stronghold floating out in the water, right in sight of the village. This epic Minecraft seed doesn't stop there, the stronghold end portal room actually has the top layer of blocks exposed out of the water. It's rare enough to find this stronghold feature, but to find the top exposed to air blocks is pretty mind boggling.

This island and the other are stretch out from a continent. It's kind of like a series of islands extending from the continent, but only two big ones and a few really small ones. This is the coolest Minecraft 1.6.4 seed for villages, islands, or strongholds... See More


Best Minecraft seed #7: Perfectly generic big Minecraft plains village seed

Minecraft village seed perfect cool best generic grasslands village 1.8.1 1.8.2 1.8.3 Minecraft.jpg

Minecraft 1.8.4 seed, Minecraft 1.8 seed, Minecraft 1.7.10 seed

This Minecraft seed works for most every Minecraft version. This big grasslands village best Minecraft seeds to see and live in. There are caves somewhat nearby for adventuring and resource collecting. Water surrounds the peninsula that the village sits on.

Many Minecraft players find this to be a fun Minecraft seed to build a village in. When first deciding to play a village seed, this is generally what players imagine first. It's easy to see why anyone would gravitate towards this particular Minecraft seed. This is a pretty big Minecraft village, and it even comes with a free lava pool. There's an abundance of trees, but not immediate amounts of endless forests to navigate through like is often the case.

The other interesting part about this Minecraft seed that helps make it one of the best Minecraft seeds is that there's something visually compelling that just feels genuine about this village. Sure houses aren't made of cubes in real life, but this village seems as if it could be a real place somewhere. It's a peaceful place to live out a Minecraft village life... See more


Best Minecraft seed #8: Extreme hills village seed near two desert villages

Minecraft village seed three villages 1.8.3 and more versions desert grass mountains.jpg

Minecraft 1.8.4 seed, Minecraft 1.8.3 seed, Minecraft 1.8.1 seed, Minecraft 1.7.10 seed

This is another one of the best Minecraft seeds for the sake of villages. This village is pretty close to where players start off. The village itself is a little jagged to say the least. The view, however, is beautiful. The spires of mountains right next to the village are something worth gazing at.

The floating cliff is really crazy and makes this good Minecraft seed a little dangerous. Monsters can spawn under the lack of light provided by the floating cliff. This Minecraft seed is probably the most important and coincidentally the most difficult to border with walls or empty moats. Other than the obvious dangerous, that particular mountain section is perfect for making and kind of stretching Minecraft creation, such as rollercoasters.

As for the other two Minecraft villages, they're off in the desert and are pretty generic too. There's even a fourth one in the opposite direction, sort of. There's plenty more to find on this Minecraft seed, more villages, desert temples, active lava flows, etc... See more


Best Minecraft seed #9: Survival island seed with mushroom biome for food

Minecraft survival island seed 1.8.3 with mushroom biome in background amazing cool fun seeds.jpg

Minecraft 1.8.4 seed, Minecraft 1.8.1 seed, Minecraft 1.8 seed

This is one of the best seeds in Minecraft for survival islands. This particular island seed has players start on a small island with a few trees and a giant mushroom biome in view. The mushroom island itself has one normal tree on it too, which is actually very rare.

Using this Minecraft mushroom island seed players can craft bowls using the wood from the trees. With bowls and mushrooms of both types players can create mushroom soup. This is the best seed in Minecraft for mushroom soup.

There are a few other small islands nearby, but the main focus is on these two islands. The first has enough trees to keep people going for ages. Even just ignoring the mushroom island, it's still possible to live on this tiny island seed using an apple orchard. This is one of the best Minecraft island seeds.

As for the mushroom island, it doesn't have any particularly unique features other than the small patch of grass blocks with a tree on them. This is one of the best Minecraft seeds for this particular reason, aside from the cool mushroom island / survival island seed spawn.

There are caves on the mushroom island, but not many, and they don't go very deep. It's odd because mushroom biomes either have tons of super deep cave systems riddled throughout them, or they seem to have none at all. There are rarely any seeds for Minecraft that are only slightly filled with caves... See more


Best Minecraft seed #10: Enchanting seed with efficiency IV book and 3 diamonds

Minecraft 1.8.4 enchanting seed with two villages and temples.jpg

Minecraft 1.8.4 seed, Minecraft 1.8.1 seed, Minecraft 1.8 seed

This is one of the best Minecraft seeds of all time for anyone who uses enchanting books, or wants a diamond pickaxe. For enchanters, this is the best desert temple seed.

In total on this seed for Minecraft there are two villages and two temples. Right next to the seed spawn there's a desert temple with three diamonds and an enchanting book for efficiency IV. With an anvil and a crafting table, players can start off with an efficiency IV diamond pick axe. This is one of the best seeds for Minecraft when players want to start off with a great diamond pickaxe.

The other perk about this cool Minecraft seeds is that there are two villages and two temples. There's more to do than just making the diamond pickaxe and the digging away. There are some above ground adventures on this fun Minecraft seed with the help of the two villages.

One of the villages has a great view of the water. There's also a more land-locked village out there too. Neither village is anything too spectacular, but even so this is still one of the best Minecraft 1.8.4 seeds for enchanting. The other desert temple has two more enchanting books and between them both there are a bunch of iron and gold ingots... See more


Best Minecraft seed #11: Worlds end Minecraft snow village seed with diamonds

Minecraft snow village 1.8.3 plains village small tiny by taiga flowers roses tulips dirt grass weeds.jpg

Minecraft 1.8.4 seed, Minecraft 1.8 seed

Here's one of the best Minecraft seeds for snow. This is a small little village on the edge of the worlds end. There's a blacksmith here with surprisingly little, just 3 diamonds and an iron chestplate. The blacksmith loot reflects the harsh conditions these villagers must face to stay alive on the edge of the temperate zone.

This is the perfect Minecraft seed for anyone who wants to play around with a Minecraft snow seed. There's tons of snowy biome out there to explore. There are also plains in the other directions for players who prefer a warmer climate. No matter what the direction, the three diamonds and the iron chestplate feel like the most generic, must-have loot out of any village blacksmith ever.

There's also the snowy forest biome section on one side of the village. This is one of the cool Minecraft seeds where the village is right at the convergence of a bunch of different environments. This is one of the best Minecraft seeds for that reason and more... See more


Best Minecraft seed #12: Multi-village Minecraft seed with temples and more

Minecraft village seed five villages three temples diamonds cows ponds lakes savanna awesome cool best fun amazing.jpg

Minecraft 1.8.4 seed, Minecraft 1.8.3 seed, Minecraft 1.7.10 seed, Minecraft 1.8 seed

This is one of the best Minecraft seeds of all time for just general structure exploration. There are at least four Minecraft villages moderately near the initial seed spawn. There are temples all over too, diamonds, and more. This is a huge Minecraft seed to explore.

Further out, players can find 3 or more villages, more temples, and more fun. This is one of those cool Minecraft seeds that has a ton of villages and temples sprawling out for thousands of coordinates. Between all the villages there's got to be tons of blacksmith loot.

While most of these villages are huge, some are small, but all of them are cool. It's easy to see why this is one of the best Minecraft seeds, it's because of all the naturally generated structures. Players can find a home somewhere among all the villages on this awesome Minecraft seed... See more


Best Minecraft seed #13: Jungle temple, swamp, mesa, plains village seed

Mesa village swamp jungle temple.png

Minecraft 1.8.4 seed, Minecraft 1.8 seed, Minecraft 1.7.10 seed

This is an exciting one of the best Minecraft seeds for the reason of biome diversity. The village is a just the center point of a seed with a jungle, swamp, mesa, and plains all converging at one point. If that's not good enough, there's a jungle temple right there in the jungle.

This is one of the best Minecraft seeds for jungle temples and villages combined. This is as close as it gets to having a jungle temple village seed. This great seed also has a swamp that expands out for a while. The mesa biome stretches out and expands some beyond the starting point as well.

The plains goes out and turns into other biomes. There are tons of different routes players can choose to go depending on what they want. Most above ground adventures can be supported with this Minecraft seed because of all the different biomes people can choose from. A change of heart doesn't mean finding a new seed, instead just move to a more exciting biome, which will be right nearby... See more


Best Minecraft Seed #14: Easy going Minecraft island seed with pigs and chickens

Minecraft 1.8.4 island seed with pigs and chickens and trees.jpg

Minecraft 1.8.4 seed, Minecraft 1.8 seed

This is one of the easiest Minecraft island seeds to survive on. This big Minecraft island has pigs and chickens, along with a ton of trees. Getting food shouldn't be too much trouble on this island.

On top of that, there's plenty of grass to collect seeds with. This is one of the best Minecraft seeds for having a relaxing survival mode island to play. There are enough trees to collect apples for days. There's also enough dirt to expand the island quite a bit for farming. There's even a cobblestone cave in the middle of the island to explore.

There are so many different unique parts to this fun Minecraft seed that make it worth trying. Rumor has it that there's even an abandoned mineshaft underneath of the island. With all of this, and animals, there's no need to explore any other islands in order to survive. This best Minecraft island seed is a perfect tropical island paradise seed... See more


Best Minecraft seed #15: Savanna mountain seed

Village seed6 890679926.png

Minecraft 1.8.4 seeds, Minecraft 1.8 seeds, Minecraft 1.7.10 seeds

This is a really cool Minecraft mountain seed to play. This is one of the best Minecraft seeds for finding a mountain right next to a village.

This mountain seed actually comes with a desert nearby, and an entire Minecraft village. The village doesn't have that many special items or buildings, but it's proximity to such a beautiful and massive savanna mountain is something to rave about. It's great having a mountain village to start off with.

The mountain itself is huge, and extends to the clouds. It's somewhat hollow like a volcano, and can gives players quite a bit to explore. It's dangerous scaling the peak of this mountain, but it's worth it to look around. This is one of the fun seeds for Minecraft survival because of the mountain. Players can't fly on survival, so the view is definitely something worth having... See more


Best Minecraft seed #16: Cool Minecraft village hidden in the forest

Roofed forest Minecraft 1.8.1 village seed caves.png

Minecraft 1.8.4 seed, Minecraft 1.8.2 seed, Minecraft 1.8 seed

This is yet another Minecraft village seed, but this is one of the best Minecraft seeds because of the forest. This seed for Minecraft has a village right at the spawn, and it's completely surrounded by forest. This is an extremely rare village as they cannot spawn in forests.

This village is on a tiny section of plains in the middle of tons of forest section. It's super awesome to find seeds for Minecraft quite like this one. Hidden away from the world, players can construct a private metropolis, like a Minecraft Atlantis hidden in the forest.

There are other directions to go with this seed as well. Outside of the forest are other biomes such as mountains, taiga, ocean, etc. While that's nice and all, the forest village is the real part that makes this one of the best Minecraft seeds. This forest village even has enough room in the plains to expand the village quite significantly. There's no shortage of wood or dirt for village houses as the forest should suffice.

Players shouldn't have any problem getting food on this amazing Minecraft seed. This seed is actually consisting of roofed forest which has giant mushrooms mixed in. With wood, players can make a bowl. With a bowl plus red and brown mushrooms, players can't make mushroom stew. This food item is a must have for surviving in and roofed forest seed. This is one of the best seeds for Minecraft... See more


Best Minecraft seed #17: Minecraft horse taming seed with horse village

Horse taming village seed 1.8.2.png

Minecraft 1.8.4 seed, Minecraft 1.8 seed, Minecraft 1.7.10 seed

This is another one of those awesome seeds for Minecraft with a village. This is one of the best Minecraft seeds for horse taming. This particular Minecraft horse taming seed has a blacksmith with a saddle and diamond horse armor.

This seed isn't just about the saddle and armor however. This Minecraft saddle seed has horses in the village itself, or depending on the version, maybe donkeys. This village isn't very far from the seed spawn, and has a really cool lava pit. The lava pit is right underneath of two Minecraft houses and can cause them to spontaneously burn down. It's fun to have naturally burning buildings on this cool Minecraft seed.

This is one of the best Minecraft seeds because of all the goodies players start with for taming horses. With this good Minecraft seed players don't have to play creative mode just to tame some Minecraft horses. This is one of those seeds for Minecraft where players hardly have to try at all. Simply find the village, loot the blacksmith, and then players are ready to tame some Minecraft horses... See more


Best Minecraft seed #18: Land bound mushroom biome seed by savanna, desert, and plains

Minecraft mushroom island seed 1.8.3 land locked not island savanna desert surrounding dirt.jpg

Minecraft 1.8.4 seed, Minecraft 1.8.3 seed, Minecraft 1.8 seed, Minecraft 1.7.10 seed

Here's a great Minecraft mushroom island seed that's not an island. This mushroom biome is almost land locked by savanna and plains. While this isn't necessarily the most ideal setup for a mushroom island, it's actually dramatically more rare than a generic one.

This is one of the best Minecraft seeds for having a mushroom biome without having to make land bridges or anything. Sometimes it can get really old having to either sail a boat, or build a bridge in order to have a mushroom biome but not be forced to build in it. It's also great for the sake of getting trees and wood. Normally if players spawn on a mushroom island biome, then there are no trees generally, and the chances of survival are bleak.

At first players actually start off no a plains peninsula with water everywhere. There's an extremely small amount of water separating the plains from the mushroom biome and the savanna and desert. That's right, on the other side of that giant mushroom seed, there's a desert biome. This is all by water, which makes for an odd seaside Minecraft seed that's one of the best Minecraft seeds for giant mushrooms that aren't on a separate island.

This awesome Minecraft seed is one worth trying for anyone who wants to try to grow giant mushrooms. It's possible to grow small mushrooms into giant mushrooms, just like trees. The catch is that the light level has to be in a specific range, so in other words, mushrooms can't even be placed in direct sunlight. This is one of the best Minecraft seeds for experimenting with giant mushroom farming... See more


Best Minecraft seed #19: Interesting sunflower plains seed

Minecraft sunflower seeds biome 1.8.3 with plains savanna desert and 6 diamonds temples.jpg

Minecraft 1.8.4 seed, Minecraft 1.8.3 seed, Minecraft 1.8 seed

How about a sunflower plains seed? This is one of the odd best Minecraft seeds. Players start off in a tiny little plains biome that's literally a circle. There are sunflowers everywhere, which is actually a sub-section of the plains biome. Finding one like this is rare, but finding one so isolated is even more rare.

This isn't all this cool Minecraft seed. Players can find savanna, desert, temples, and even a village with enough exploration. There are some pretty crazy hills going on at one point on the way over to the village in this Minecraft seed.

This is one of the best Minecraft seeds because of how perfect the sunflower plains section is to build upon. Players have an area that's just big enough, but just small enough to build something really cool and have it stand out. This would be a perfect place to build a giant statue for a screenshot, or something like that. The sunflower plains is a perfect display for any awesome Minecraft creation. There's even an enchanting book in one of the temples, for unbreaking III... See more


Best Minecraft seed #20: A tale of two perfect grassland Minecraft villages

A tale of two Minecraft village seed 1.8.2 literally in sight of eachother.jpg

Minecraft 1.8.4 seed, Minecraft 1.8.2 seed, Minecraft 1.8 seed

This is one of the best Minecraft seeds for double villages. Players within a hundred or two blocks of the first of these two beautiful grassland villages. Players can easily find the second one once they find the first because of how obnoxiously close the villages to one another.

Double villages as extreme as this are rare. Finding a double village seed with two grassland villages is even better. This fun seed is great for the sake of the beauty of the two villages. Both of these villages are also fairly big, which makes this fun Minecraft seed that much better. Who doesn't want giant villages after all?

That's not all to this one of the best Minecraft seeds. Players can find some cool rivers flowing on either side of the villages. There's a small section of trees separating the two villages, apparently they don't like looking at each other. Across one of the rivers is a section of hilly taiga, or extreme hills. There are forests and plains to any other side and probably more biomes further out. Not like anyone would wnat to leave such a perfect Minecraft seed spawn anyway... See more
