Minecraft seeds allow you to create unique biomes that keep the game fresh no matter how much you play. With the 1.18 patch update, we’ve put together a list of the best Minecraft seeds in 2022 for Java and Bedrock, from villages to islands and stunning vistas.

Whether you’re tired of your current Minecraft game biome or looking to go on a new adventure, you’ll want to use a world seed. These seeds enable you to both generate new maps and even visit existing ones that have been used by other Minecraft players.

From dense forests that house hidden villages to snowy tundra temples, there is a biome for every kind of setting. Of course, this means tracking down the perfect world to set up your new home can be an incredibly time-consuming task.


Fortunately, we’ve scoured the depths of the game’s never-ending worlds and plucked out 29 of the best Minecraft seeds you can use in 1.18 for Bedrock and Java.

Updated March 10, 2022, with new village seeds.

This seed has reached over 4,500 upvotes at the time of writing, and it’s not hard to see why. This incredibly unique Minecraft seed features a towering plinth with a small village resting atop it. Any Pillagers that spawn to attack the village seem to appear down at the bottom of the pillar, meaning that they can’t reach the Villagers, and so the raid will quickly be over!

Available on Bedrock, this amazing cat-shaped island is all you’ll need if you’re a fan of the furry feline. While the majority of the biome above ground appears to be relatively similar, the shape of the island alone is enough to warrant a trip to this particular seed.

It’s not every day that you generate a new Minecraft biome and are greeted with such a diverse cluster of locations. This amazing seed features 11 biomes which are all neatly clustered together, so you won’t need to trek far in order to reap the resources from each area. 

If that wasn’t enough, you spawn in the very center of the map. Why not take a sandy stroll through the mesa plains, then cool off in the lush green forests? You’ll definitely never want to leave this picturesque biome. 

Mushroom Island

Become the reigning owner of your very own Mushroom Kingdom with this fungus inhabited island. Once you’ve finished perusing the sandy shores and done a bit of fishing, you’ll be able to saunter back to your island mansion and get in some quality relaxation. 

The mushroom island neighbors a desert village island and a woodland mansion island, so there’s plenty of exploration to be done. Mansions are hard to find at the best of times, so finding two is definitely an even rarer occurrence. Even Nintendo’s Mario Mario Bros. didn’t have it this good!

All biomes (including all rare biome variants)

If you thought mintymoes’ 11 biomes at spawn seed was good, then you’ll definitely want to add this seed to your collection. BigBrain5Head hit the Minecraft world jackpot when he spawned a world with every single biome and all rare biome variants. This means you can set up your home and instantly get access to the game’s best resources. 

To make matters even better, every biome is within a 2500 block radius of the spawn. This instantly cuts down the annoying treks between each area, saving you huge amounts of time. BigBrain5Head is certainly worthy of their name.

Mesa biomes offer some of the most beautifully striking sights in Minecraft. The craggy canyons feature everything from reddish blocks, prickly cacti, and rocky outcrops making for some rather picturesque views. This is especially true when the mesa biome in question encompasses a small jungle.

Mountains not only provide you with a fantastic vantage point for you to survey your kingdom, but they also make for some awesome house locations. While mountains aren’t exactly uncommon in Minecraft, it is rare for them to completely surround a plain valley. The mountainous terrain even has its own freshwater river that flows through and around the craggy cliffs. 

A land of Fire and Ice

This Minecraft seed is like a Russian doll as it’s hiding a secret area. In order to uncover the hidden village, you must first traverse the snowy tundra and make your way over a wooded mountain before you uncover a desert island. On this sandy wasteland, you’ll find a small village basking in the sun. 

It’s a unique sight to behold and one that demonstrates just how amazing Minecraft’s procedurally generated worlds can be.

This seed won’t catch your eye for its scenic sights, nor will it make a particularly quaint home. It will, however, will put your survival skills to the test. Players start off by spawning inside an underwater shipwreck and you’ll need to escape in order to survive.

It’s up to you to salvage the shipwreck, fish for consumables, and search your watery surroundings for any useful resources. HydroPunkBot’s biome is not for the faint of heart, but if you’re up for a challenge, then this world seed will do just that.
