20 Best Minecraft Survival Seeds

Among all the sandbox games available in the market, Minecraft offers some of the most amazing survival worlds to explore and put yourself up to a challenge. So we are stepping in to bring you a list of the best Minecraft survival seeds to ever exist. From stranded islands to glitched structures, there is something for everyone. So, without wasting more time, let’s find the perfect seed for your next survival adventure.

1. Village in Mansion

Woodland mansion generated inside a village in this survival Minecraft seed

If you play Minecraft regularly, you must already know that villagers and Pillagers are arch nemesis. The Pillagers attack the Minecraft villagers at sight as they try to flee as fast as they can. In an ideal world, you would want to keep villagers as far away from Pillagers as possible.

But pushing their survival off the edge, the villagers in this seed reside right within the biggest Pillager structure in the game. Not too far from the spawn, you get a weird combination of a Woodland Mansion and a plains village. The glitched structures are not only bizarre but also kind of hilarious. However, the villagers who get hunted as soon as they spawn might not agree with me.

  • Coordinates: 100, 70, 100 (Java)

2. Spawn Near a Massive Cave

The caves of each Minecraft world are the ultimate storehouse of resources, ores, and even hostile mobs. Though more often than not, you have to dig around for a while before you stumble upon a cave system worth exploring. However, what if you could spawn and jump into one right away? That’s exactly what happens in this amazing survival seed.

It spawns you right next to two large cave openings, which lead to one of the largest networks of caves to ever exist. There are rare ores like diamonds, hostile mobs, and even hints of various cave biomes in the same place. The cave area spreads across hundreds of blocks and goes as deep as deepslate.

The best part about this seed is that you don’t even have to dig too much to get down to the deepest levels. However, we highly recommend you create some of these Minecraft potions before jumping into this dark resource heaven.

3. Unique Desert Village

Desert villages are one of the simplest types of villages in the game. But this survival seed tries to change that. It gives us a multi-level village with houses that spawn in a staircase-like format. Plus, there are multiple lake caves in the same, which is ironic for a village situated in the desert. Not to forget, while the caves will be a great resource for you, they are a fatal trap for camels that spawn in this village.

  • Coordinates: -562, 75, -1364 (Java)

4. The Ocean Witch

As you might know, Witch huts only spawn in the swamp biome, which often generates next to other forest-based biomes in the game. But in this survival seed, you get the wildest swamp biome in the middle of the ocean. You might miss its existence if it wasn’t for the iconic muddy water and two submerged trees.

With such a random and incomplete biome, structures have almost no chance of spawning. But again, bending the rules, this survival seed gives us a witch hut in the oceanic swamps. Moreover, it is not floating on the water. Instead, it has long wooden pillars keeping it in place. Finding another witch hut like this is close to impossible, so we suggest you visit the witch before they sail away.

  • Seed: -2419527106680428309
  • Coordinates: -980, 70, -728 (Bedrock)

5. Village Survival Island

Starting on an easy note, our first seed spawns us on a huge survival island with a dependable savanna village on its edge. You can get food, wood, and all the basic resources to start your adventure right after spawning. After that, you can either venture into the rest of the world or stay on the island make a Nether portal and try to speedrun the game.

  • Seed Code: -2927611868038818840
  • Village Coordinates: X:264 Z:-376 (Bedrock)
  • Village Coordinates: X:160 Z: -336 (Java)

6. Ancient City Surrounded by Dripstone Caves

Now this is something you just have to see if you’re playing on Java edition. Our spawn point is in a decently sized desert biome. Thankfully there are a couple of villages nearby where you can get food and company. When you’re ready for an adventure, follow the coordinates shown below that’ll lead you to a massive and we mean massive cave where you could easily and safely fly around with your elytra.

There you’ll find an ancient city in the center that’s surrounded by dripstone caves on one side. The cave creates an overhang above the city, covered with pointed dripstone and dripstone blocks. Not only that but the ceiling is made up of pointed dripstone, creating quite a scary scenery when you’re at the bottom.

  • Seed Code: 1349971399
  • Ancient City Coordinates: X: -670 Y: -51 Z: 905 (Java)

7. Pirate Island

As the name suggests, this survival seed spawns you on an island village with water in all directions. But, unlike regular villages, you also have a rare complete shipwreck next to the village. Both of these structures are perfect to give you enough resources to get started.

Though, when it comes to base building, you might want to explore the nearby islands. Two of them feature a mushroom field biome that’s resistant to spawning hostile mobs in Minecraft — even at night. Moreover, the same islands also have caves full of useful ores and building blocks. Not to forget, if you play on the Bedrock edition, this seed gives birth to a challenging survival island. No shipwreck. No village.

  • Seed: -8496124488663064751 (Java)

8. Bastion Fortress

The Bastion Remnant and the Nether Fortress are the scariest and the most loot-heavy structures in the Nether dimension. However, neither of them is easy to find. Moreover, both of them also have their unique hostile mobs that you need to deal with. While we can’t tackle the latter, this survival seed totally eliminates the need for searching.

In this seed’s Nether dimension, you just have to explore your spawn point, and you will find both Bastion Remnant and Nether Fortress in one spot. Considering how vital it is now to discover Smithing Templates, this seed is quite a true blessing. You will find not one but three distinct templates within the same structure.

  • Seed Code: 5154957738255504112
  • Fortress Coordinates: -40, 72, -160

9. Monumental Stronghold

The stronghold and the ocean monument are two of the largest and most loot-friendly structures in the overworld of Minecraft. But neither of them is easy to find. One requires you to dive deep into the ocean, while the other makes you tirelessly roam around the world.

But if you find one, the other will automatically appear in this survival seed. It generates an ocean monument right within a stronghold. Both of these structures are merged into each other, and it means you can get amazing loot with ease. However, it also means that you will have to face hostile mobs from both structures. So, do get some of the best sword enchantments to keep yourself safe.

  • Seed: 5101615473241287012
  • Coordinates: -1293, 35, -1690 (Bedrock)

10. Falling Down in Minecraft Survival Seed

While there are many great survival seeds on our list, almost none of them is as challenging and game-changing as this one. This seed spawns you inside a huge cave hole with water quickly pushing toward the bottom of the cave. If you don’t move quickly, you will soon find yourself in one of the largest lava lakes in the overworld.

Meanwhile, if you safely make it down, you can find diamonds, iron, and a bunch of other Minecraft ores in no time. However, to mine any of them, you need wood, which is only available outside this doomed location. So, even with amazing loot, you will be at a serious risk of not surviving.

  • Seed Code: 1870652620 (Bedrock and Java)
  • Diamond Vein Coordinates: -145, -48, -58

11. Natural Swamp Villagers

At this point, it has become a gag in the Minecraft community that jungle and swamp villagers are homeless. Given the right circumstances, they can spawn naturally in the game. But neither of them has any in-game villages, and there is no release date for the same in the near future. Luckily, this seed helps the latter and provides a home to swamp villagers alongside plains villagers.

This unique situation is only possible because this Minecraft seed spawns a unique plains village surrounded by Mangrove Swamps on all sides. Some parts of the village extend beyond the plains area, triggering swamp villagers to spawn in the swamps. If you haven’t met these unique villagers yet, this is your golden opportunity.

  • Seed Code: 1835704
  • Village Coordinates: 2522, 75, -1562 (Java)

12. Floating Outpost Near Village

Pillager Outposts are tall hostile structures that are home to the Pillager family of mobs. They are naturally hostile towards all villagers and players, and not to be taken lightly. However, most players only encounter than while traveling to the mountains and hills in Minecraft. But that’s not the case in this seed’s world.

It generates an outpost in the middle of a massive river with almost no ground for the hostile mobs to stand on. While the idea of a water-based Pillage structure sounds exciting, the actual result doesn’t look as appealing as you might imagine.

Though, it is easy to loot if you have a boat in Minecraft. Not to forget, there is also a savanna village on a nearby shore, giving birth to a variety of in-game lore. Though, how do you think the Pillagers ended up here? Share your theory in the comments below!

  • Seed Code: 547107664487 (Java)
  • Outpost Coordinates: 214, 63, 715
  • Village Coordinates: 64, 63, 727

13. Winter Wonderland

If you want a truly challenging survival seed, then this bizarre winter wonderland is made for you. It spawns you in a huge snowy biome area with almost no reliable ways to obtain food. Moreover, even other resources, including bootable structures and caves are hard to find.

So, you have to work creatively and make your way out of the cold world for a chance of survival. Alternatively, you can choose to adapt to the situation and start living in this demanding climate. But if you choose the latter option, make sure to create a campfire in Minecraft to keep you warm.

  • Seed Code: 5517077434906338833 (Bedrock and Java)

14. Drowning at Spawn

While there are endless seeds in Minecraft that put your survival at risk. At least most of them give you a fair chance to survive. But that is not the case with this seed. It throws you in the middle of the ocean with no piece of land, let alone any structures nearby. You don’t spawn on a floating block but in the water.

Now, you not only have to avoid drowning but also look for food, resources, and all the basic tools to survive. Because there is no wood nearby, you can’t even craft a boat to save your life. So, your best bet would be to collect blocks from the ocean floor and eat fish until you find a landmass.

  • Seed Code: 2607133457590840792 (Bedrock and Java)

15. Mansion Island

Woodland Mansion is one of the most dangerous structures in the overworld of Minecraft. But they are also extremely dangerous and only spawn in the rare dark forest biome. So, a seed that spawns you next to a mansion is not only unique but also exceptionally rare. You might not be able to find an alternative to it anytime soon.

However, it’s a rarity that isn’t too useful to you if you plan on looting the mansion. Since you spawn on a survival island, you don’t get too many resources without venturing out. Meanwhile, entering the mansion without proper resources, and at least a set of iron armor would be an invitation to death. However, the cherry on the cake is that you will respawn on the same island even if you get butchered.

  • Seed Code: -2867948536818844204 (Java)

16. Badlands Temple Seed

Unfortunately, Badlands is one of those Minecraft biomes that don’t have any exclusive strictures of their own. But geographically, they feel like a close relative to the desert biome, which not only has villages but also desert temples. So, it’s about time the two started sharing their resources. That’s exactly what happens in the Bedrock survival seed.

This seed spawns a desert temple on the side of a huge badlands mountain. Considering there is no desert biome anywhere around the temple, this structure feels out of place. However, this doesn’t affect its loot and all the chests still spawn beneath the temple. It would be interesting how this affects the archaeological features of Minecraft.

  • Seed Code: -2295419690744224183
  • Coordinates: 840, 100, 600 (Bedrock)

17. Ancient City Portal and 3 Dungeons

Yes, you read the title right. This seed features a couple of unimaginable underground structures that spawn in glitched spots. The first of them is a group of dungeons with mob spawners close to each other. At times, players struggle to find even one of them after hours of digging. But you can easily reach them one after another and set up three zombie mob farms in no time.

On the other hand, this seed also spawns a ruined portal within an Ancient City. The portal structure is not only in a weird spot but is also much larger than usual. Not to forget, ironically, the ruined portal spawns right in front of the mysterious Ancient City portal, which everyone is still speculating about.

  • Seed Code: -6749557310681711698 (Java)
  • Ruined Portal Coordinates: -1845, -19, -986
  • Zombie Spawner Coordinates: 1810, -22, -955
  • 2nd Zombie Spawner Coordinates: 1779, 7, -964
  • 3rd Zombie Spawner Coordinates: 1806, -21, -997

18. Scattered Mountain

There is no scarcity of beautiful tall mountains when it comes to the vast overworld of Minecraft. But, this survival seed offers an alternate viewpoint for the charisma of the game’s mountain. It spawns a scattered mountain that feels like it’s out of a dystopian world. Plus, it offers a challenge for you to reach the top with only your parkour skills.

While you can always build straight up, we suggest you take the tougher route. In the end, you will be heavily rewarded with one of the most beautiful sceneries of all time. Not to forget, if you are playing on the Java edition, please make sure to turn on shaders in Minecraft to push the astonishing visuals to a new height.

  • Seed Code: 6498999856499601911
  • Coordinates: -388, 63, 285 (Java & Bedrock)

19. The World of Trees

Taking a simpler route, this survival seed spawns you in a jungle surrounded by a variety of forests. You can get most variations of trees in no time. Plus, the area is filled with friendly mobs, water, and Minecraft ore-filled cave openings. So, if you want a perfect spawn for creating a resource-heavy base, this is the seed for you.

  • Seed Code: -1182128540532934599

20. Sinking Pyramid

Desert pyramids are overworld structures that only spawn in the desert biome of Minecraft and are always surrounded by sand. But, not in this survival seed, which drops the pyramid into an ocean. Moreover, it’s right next to a desert village and is close to the spawn point.

  • Seed Code: 2634434878889597772
  • Temple and Village Coordinates: -200, 75, 264 (Bedrock)

With that, it’s time for you to load your Minecraft and start exploring all these amazing seeds and the unique worlds they offer. However, if you want something more specific and challenging, we suggest you explore the best Ancient City seeds in Minecraft. Though, make sure you know how to defeat the Warden before venturing into the dark caves. Having said that, which is your favorite Minecraft survival seed? Tell us in the comments below!
