Seed: -9036966008009856678

This seed made it to both our Best Village Seeds and Best Desert Seeds lists because of the majestic formation you see in the image above. This naturally spawned Desert Village tower is very close to spawn. It the perfect set up for a Minecraft Adventure (for those of you that are interested in playing and making custom maps) or just as a nice spot to start a new Survival world. With all the structures near spawn, you won't want to skip building a home in this world!

    • Desert Village Tower: -168 -312
    • Ocean Monument: -120 152

Ancient Desert City

Seed: 6000015

When you spawn in this world, you have instant access to the two most underappreciated biomes: Deserts and Badlands. While they may have an arid atmosphere, this seed proves that they have some of the most beautiful scenic landscapes you can find in the game. This desert spans over 2,000 blocks tall and and almost 9,000 blocks wide! There are ample Desert Temples and Desert Villages near spawn. When you're ready, make a 3,000 block long trek to some Wooded Badlands to find a cluster of Ancient Cities!

  • Key Locations
    • Desert Temple: 264 104
    • Desert Temple: 184 -472
    • Desert Temple: -136 -296
    • Desert Village: -232 88
    • Ancient City: -2856 -632

Desert Temples and Villages

Code: 6245064415419240492

This is the perfect seed to start the Minecraft 1.19 Wilds Update, especially if you are fond of deserts. You start the world in a massive arid climate made of a mixture between Badlands and Desert biomes. A couple hundred blocks away is a Mangrove Swamp biome, which is one of the new biomes added in The Wilds update. What really sells this seed is the sheer number of Desert Temples and Villages near the spawn. Within 1,000 blocks of spawn, you'll find at least five Temples and seven Villages, with dozens more within the first 5,000 blocks. You also spawn near a cluster of five Ancient Cities!

  • Key Locations
    • Village: 184 344
    • Desert Temple: 520 -360
    • Ancient City: 1672 904
    • Shipwreck: -72 40
    • Desert Temple: 232 888

The Desert Starter Seed

Seed: 45543

If you look closely at the image above, you'll see most what this seed offers as soon as you start the game. In it, you can see the spawn point (near the ocean on the top edge), two Desert Villages (including one that has generated on a Desert hill), two Desert Temples (one being mostly hidden underground), and a jaw-dropping multi-tiered mud-covered windswept savannah tower. There is also a large Mangrove swamp in the middle of the Desert, and most importantly: a Stronghold only 400 blocks from spawn!

  • Key Locations
    • Desert Village: -1008 -432
    • Desert Temple: -1208 -264
    • Desert Village: -1424 0
    • Desert Temple: -1224 152

Big Desert, Little Mangrove

Seed: 1125899970844347

You spawn next to several large lakes in an enormous desert in this seed. The desert is 3,000 blocks tall an and 5,000 blocks wide, making it one of the biggest deserts we've seen. It stretches so far that the desert in which you spawn also contains two Strongholds! The desert contains many other structures, and you'll find almost every other overworld structure and a sizeable Mangrove Swamp within a couple thousand blocks from spawn!

Clusters of Structures

Code: 2814749802107550

Most of our desert seeds rarely make it to the running of our best seeds, but this 1.19 Desert seeds sets itself far ahead of the others. It works as not only a desert seed, but as a great seed for speedruns and hardcore games. You start on the edge of a Desert and next to a Jungle. Whatever direction you walk, you will find clusters of different structures within a couple thousand blocks. This also means that there almost every biome is available to you within the same distance. You will find biomes with all the climates (cold, hot, wet, and dry) and structures that fit in each one (Igloos, Villages, Temples, Monuments, Ancient Cities, and more). The only structure that doesn't have a cluster is the Woodland Mansion, but there are still at least of them within 5,000 blocks!

  • Key Locations
    • Jungle Biome (Near Jungle Temples): -400 450
    • Desert Biome (Near Desert Temples and Villages: 400 -450
    • Badlands Biome (Near Cluster of Ancient Cities): 3200 0
    • Ocean Biome (Near Ocean Monuments): 240 -2000
    • Snow Biome (Near Igloos): -2400 -2900

These seeds also work with Java, but the structure generation and key locations will not be accurate.

Desert Temple Village > Underground Villager House > Stronghold

This seed deviates from our usual "best seeds" lists. The downside? You spawn over 2k blocks away from the Desert biome that makes this seed truly unique. The upside? The hike is well worth it. In a fascinating and almost impossible happenstance, on this seed you will find a Desert Temple with a single Village house (and Villager) directly underneath it. Then, even further down, is a Stronghold. It's safe to say that this kind of setup will never be seen in any other seed. If that's not enough to get you to use this seed, you will be pleasantly surprised by the exuberant number of other helpful structures that lie between you and the one-of-a-kind Desert Temple.

Code: -1891299974

  • Key Locations
    • Desert Temple/Villager/Stronghold: 2312 232
    • Village: 328 184
    • Jungle Temple: 1064 -440
    • Village: 1448 -360
    • Desert Temple: 1608 -264

The Expanse

Seed: 1432766570

This is the type of seed you would initially think of if you want a really good Desert seed. The desert is a massive expanse that holds over 20 Desert Temples within a couple thousand blocks of spawn. We'll have the first couple of them listed for you below, but you'll have to see this majestic seed for yourself if you want to find the rest!

  • Key Locations
    • Desert Temple: 152 -648
    • Desert Temple: -152 -392
    • Desert Temple: 312 -232
    • Desert Temple: 696 40
    • Desert Temple: 616 664

Seed: 1618322923

In this massive desert, you will find a huge number of structures in the spawn desert, which is thousands of blocks long. Just from the image, you can see a massive Desert at the spawn with a Pillgar Outpost, Desert Village, and Desert Temple nearby. When running this through world generation programs, you can find over 40 of these Desert structures within 2500 blocks of spawn!

  • Key Locations
    • Village: -312 -424
    • Desert Temple: -248 -360
    • Desert Temple: -136 -792
    • Desert Temple: 120 -744
    • Village: 232 -808

The Excavation Site

Spawn in a Village/Excavation Site in this wonderful desert seed and join the Villagers around you as they dig up and uncover the secret behind the Desert Temple right in the middle of town. Some of the work is done for you, but you'll have to dive into the Desert Temple yourself to find the rest. The best part? This is just the beginning of your adventure on a marvelous seed with dozens of Shipwrecks and a large expanse of Desert nearby with other "excavation sites" and Desert Temples!

  • Key Locations
    • The Excavation Site: 24 8
    • Desert Temple: 264 -152
    • Shipwreck: -232 200

    • Village: -192 -512

Desert Duel

Seed: -8499699871731677737

In this incredible Desert spawn, you will find two Desert villages, each with their own Desert Temple, separated only be a river. Are these two rival villages? Will you have to pick a side? That's entirely up to you, but this is a great seed to start if you want immediate access to plenty of rare structures and village resources!

  • Key Locations
    • Village: 176 128
    • Desert Temple: 216 104
    • Village: 144 -176
    • Desert Temple: 138 -168
    • Village: -160 0

Life on a Deserted Island

This is a fun seed for players who like a challenge at the start. When you start your world on this seed, you get to experience what life would be like on a deserted island. A village is there to help you with whatever you need—except for a source of wood! If you think you can make your way off this island with no source of wood at the start, this is a perfect seed to put that to the test!

  • Key Locations
    • Village: 16 0
    • Desert Temple: 280 24
    • Shipwreck: 56 232
    • Shipwreck: -104 -232
