Best Minecraft 1.19 Island Seeds

These are the best Island Seeds we can find for the newest version of Minecraft! An important thing to mention is that structures generate differently on Java and Bedrock. Because of this, some the key locations for each seed will be different!

Old Lush Island

Seed: -904660575148047233

This island doesn't fit in with many of the other island seeds on this list because it spawns you in an Old Growth Spruce biome. This is rare enough, but what really draws us into this seed is the generation beneath the ground. The tall island is hollowed out, and resting inside is a beautiful Lush Cave. This cave also includes the naturally generated pool filled with Axolotls shown in the image above!

Ancient Isle

Seed: 931970827062634009

If you like a challenge and want to live on an isolated island that houses a deep and dark secret, then you want to start with this seed. You don't spawn directly on the island, but a short boat ride will take you to a small island filled with hills and mountains. If you want resources before heading to your island home, you can explore the jungle at spawn and find three Jungle Temples within 500 blocks!

Biome War Island

Seed: 5890542

If you don't have an overworld map, you might be surprised that this seed spawns you on an island. It is over 2,500 blocks in diameter, so you'll be in for quite a hike if you want to go end to end. The real draw to this island is that it has most biomes on it and dozens of overworld structures. You'll also find several Outposts and Villages sprawled throughout this massive island. We're not sure what they're fighting over, but maybe the five Ancient Cities under the island have something to do with it. We'll leave you with a few key locations, but you'll have to explore to find the rest!

On this seed, you start on a large Plains island with three Villages, all in different spots on the island. While it's, of course, not identical to the United Kingdom, it doesn't take a huge stretch of imagination to draw the comparison! This is not only a great survival seed with plenty of resources and biomes nearby, but it provides you the opportunity to create some real-world roleplay!

Quaint Island

Seed: 11020382

This seed represents the epitome of the phrase 'basic survival island'. It is the optimum seed for the true Minecraft vanilla fan that isn't searching for anything extravagant and simply wants a chill survival experience on a quaint island getaway. When you spawn on the island, you have access to plenty of trees and a small village, so you'll have all the crops and wood necessary to establish your own community. This is also a great seed to use if you want to host a small survival server with a couple friends!

  1. The Jack’s hideout one now has a mangrove swamp instead of the normal swamp.

    1. Even better! I’ll have to update the list.

  2. where is the seed for the Mushroom Island Portal?

    1. Not sure why it wasn’t there. The seed number was at the top of the article, but it should have been below the image, too. I fixed it so it’s there!

  3. Thanks for the awesome seeds! There all pretty good, but I’m interested in gulla gulla island. What is the seed for it? I didn’t see it posted.

  4. What’s the seed for “The Mushroom Island Portal”? I can’t see the seed anywhere. :s

  5. i didn’t spawn anywhere near a village for the life and death seed. i was on java

  6. i found the best seed 1.17 java seed:5370624007967745999

  7. when i spawned on the The Three Smiths’ Island i didn’t see anything

    1. Which version of Minecraft did you use the seed? That one is for Java. Were you using Bedrock?

      1. Same problem. I’m using Java 1.16.5, and I spawned in a taiga/mega taiga instead.

  8. Nice post ! Thanks for sharing.

  9. these seed are good

    1. We’re glad you like them! Which one are you going to try first?

  10. Could you use these seeds in xbox one?

    1. Yes you can

  11. anyone know the java equivalent to the “tomhanks” seed?

    1. This is the java equivalent

  12. I put in the seed SwiftStar1 and I got a pretty cool variety of a group of islands

    1. The word SwiftStar1 converts to -1720695316. That means the seed in number form is -1720695316.

  13. On the Large island ( seed 5797705914173781750 )
    What version is it?

    1. Java 🙂 It says so underneath the picture

  14. um, where are the lists for the coordinates?

  15. 5073900511118366916 – small island with few trees around, world just started – not explored yet – have fun (v1.16.3 java seed).


    1. Nintendo Switch is on “Bedrock” so there are seeds for it.

  17. is there a seed that has lots of islands on it

    1. 1471397948= insane archipelago seed in Minecraft like crazy good 10 islands huge reef with ruin and shipwreck right by the reef on 2 of the island is a sink hole down to lava and after the lislabd is a mesa on one side and savanna on the other. platform bedrock

      1. Thanks for this seed man!
        It’s real fun to play on multiplayer.

    2. The seed “Castaway” is pretty cool too to start on an island on java edition. It is surrounded with shipwrecks and 2 underwater temples.
      Note: The C uppercase is important.

    3. Most of these fit that requirement.

      1. I think he means multiple islands together like an archipelago, which is not on here

        1. Plenty of these have multiple islands together, not sure how you’d know they didn’t without going to each seed.

  18. The Village Island (Java) seed does not spawn the village. The island is there and I can see by the terrain it’s the place, but the village itself won’t be there.

    1. It will likely only work in 1.14.4, so make sure to use that version if you want to use the seed!

  19. If you type “Stranded Deep” in the seed you will spawn on a little island next to a ocean monument

  20. I put the seed tomhanks. there was no island but I spawned next to a woddland mansion and then I adventured like a few meters and I saw an ocean monument and a ender portal under water next to the mansion. WOW HOW LUCKY AM I

    1. It may have been because it was bedrock edition.

    2. I’m going to have to record the versions better of the seeds because they seem to change pretty drastically. I’m glad you found all that stuff though!

  21. that bedrock seed -407474912 was a zombie village island for me; a little bit different layout but had a blacksmith chest and few farm plots started. super neat for a “deserted island” type survival
