How to find biomes in Minecraft

Locating a biome in MinecraftMojang
Locating biomes is easy if you have cheats active.

To locate a biome in Minecraft, you’ll need to use cheats, meaning you’ll need to allow cheats into your world. To do this, follow our simple guide detailing how to enable them.

Then, once they’re enabled, if you own the Java edition of Minecraft, follow these steps:

  1. Enter the search bar by pressing “/”.
  2. Type “/locatebiome”.
  3. Before pressing enter, you should see a window pop up with the biome you want to find.
  4. Select the biome you want to find and press enter.
  5. It will give you the coordinates of that biome.

If you don’t own Java or prefer to locate your biomes without using cheats then you can always check out a see with that biome in there. Our handy seeds guide has some great biomes, or you could try using an online biome finder that will take your seed and tell you the nearest biome of your choice.
