Minecraft Survival Island Seeds
This Minecraft seed page is dedicated to survival island seeds.
Starting with Minecraft version 1.7, oceans became much smaller and islands more common. Unfortunately this change made Minecraft survival island seeds extremely rare, especially the lone island seeds. Luckily it is still possible to find survival islands, but that's usually it, it's usually a few islands. Almost every survival island seed now can turn into island hopping if the player chooses to leave the initial island.
Survival island seeds are fun, especially when playing on hardcore mode. There's some kind of appeal to having a Minecraft Robinson Crusoe experience with a long island out at sea. It's too bad after 1.7 Minecraft users won't be able to experience it quite like they used to.
There are three types of survival island seeds as well. These three include sand barges (all sand, no trees), dirt islands, and tree islands. The tree islands are less common, but when playing a survival island seed, they're a must. The only way to survive on a survival island without trees is to find a dungeon underground, and quick. The only other option is to find a village island, which are extremely rare.
There's nothing as much fun as putting the game on hard difficulty and then playing a survival island seed on none other than the survival game mode setting. Sometimes life on an abandoned Minecraft island is better than at home.

The wolves are neat and all, but really they don't serve much of a purpose on a Minecraft island seed other than as pets.
