#17 Smallest Island Seed with 2 Shipwrecks
This seed is perhaps one of Minecraft’s cruelest jokes at least to speedrunners. Players spawn on probably the smallest Island ever, which is 6 blocks in size. Four of those blocks are gravel, and right next to it, are 3 more blocks made of sand which makes up a second tiny Island.
The best course of action on this seed is to navigate the world by boat at least for the starting area. However, the seed isn’t all cruel, because there is a sunken ship nearby that comes in clutch for the players in this world. The shipwreck has about 3 loot chests each with some enchanted items and a treasure map.
There is also a second shipwreck close to a nearby mountain island. It also has 3 loot chests and a buried treasure map, and a couple of useful items. So if you just want to give yourself a challenging ocean experience for no good reason, then give this seed a try.

#18 Desert Temple and Village Island
This seed is a combination of the desert and Badlands biomes, all of which houses a large village. The village is protected by an iron golem, and it also has some Mansons in it. However, it doesn’t have farmers which aren’t all that great but not completely terrible.
Each house has a crafting table in it so there’s that. Also not far away from this village, underneath the Badlands, you’ll find a big Mineshaft. You can reach this Mineshaft by digging near the island, I also advise you to go through the Badlands so that you don’t work through the waters.
Seed Code: 7777777782414476847
#19 Forest Island Next to Huge Mushroom Island
Just as the name implies, this seed is equipped with a Forest Island which is right next to a big Mushroom Island. The player spawns on a smaller island close to these other landmarks, but the island also has a lot of useful materials for the player. However, there are no real food plants or animals on the forest island which is kind of sad, but the Mushroom island acts as a cover-up for that mishap.
Meanwhile, there is also a network of caves just below the mushroom island, and players can explore these caves for useful ores which can be crafted into other items in the game. There is a Mineshaft just below the spawn island which is also another source of useful loot to help you start up your new survival world.
Seed Code: -4728820744748531090
#20 Floating Islands Minecraft Seed
Do you want a cool world with multiple useful and unique features? Then the Floating Islands seed is for you. Just as the name implies, the island’s all float around an awesome savanna village. Players spawn underneath a floating island that has some villagers’ houses on it, there are also some mobs nearby to welcome you into the new world because the spawn area has low light in it even during the day.
Players can also find useful items inside this village, like a chest containing 19 Obsidian, so right off the mark you already have a Nether Portal. If you explore the other houses on the non-floating landscape, you’ll see that the majority of them have a chest, while one of them even has a crafting table. The village also has an Iron Golem, a cleric, some farmers, and a cartographer, so you can rest assured that you’ll never run out of items.

Players spawn on a stranded tiny piece of forest Island, all of which is surrounded by nothing but I’ve structures. However, if you keep traveling in one direction, you can find other biomes.
This seed is also an iconic seed for quite a lot of reasons. You can start by gathering some wood in the spawn point or the cold ruin near it. Players also spawn with an enchanted fishing rod which makes sure you don’t run out of food.
