Best Minecraft Biomes

The Top Ten


What more can you want? Beautiful grass and leaf, 2 exclusive plants (cocoa beans and melon), tallest trees, exclusive structure, 2 types of wood (no biome have more than 2 types of wood), exclusive mob (ocelot). If you build a house on top of a tree and light it up well, it is almost completely mob-proof

The jungle is easily my favorite biome. It is difficult to navigate, but there is a huge abundance of melons to eat, a very lush grass and foliage cover, and tons of wood. I LOVE making treehouses (my favorite type of house) on the big jungle trees. You could fall, but mobs can't reach you.
Also, jungle trees have cocoa beans, and I believe you can only find cocoa beans in the jungle. Cocoa beans+Wheat=Cookies!

Watermelons are common plus you get loads of melon slices from each one.

-naturally spawning ocelots
-naturally spawning cocoa
-lots of high wood
-have jungle temple
-jungle trees height make them great place to live

-Not a lot of passive mob spawn here,except on jungle edge
-a lot of fps drops
-a lot of high wood mean you will spend a lot of time chopping wood
-hard to travel trough
-not a lot of jungle tree sapling being dropped

Mushroom Fields

no wood=no stone no stone=no iron no iron=no shears no shear=no mooshroom mushrooms - INFINITYKILLER

Other minecraft biomes: We are all so unique with wood and grass.

Mushroom island: Noobs. I have purple grass, mushrooms, red cows, and unique.

No mobs spawn! It's the best ever except for the fact that there is no wood.

Pretty much unlimited food plus mobs cannot spawn

Extreme Hills

Looks like a cross between Middle earth and Pandora.
Mountain houses are cool as well as bridging mountains. Emeralds and crazy face generation too.

No trees that take years to cut down, some wood, and great space for houses!

Want a great view, come here.

Snowing above Y 95 great for snowball farming

The Nether

It's another dimension, it's also my least favourite dimension out of the three in minecraft - darthvadern

Still a biome, and has magma cubes

The Official nether biome name is Hell - Tzzzt123

It is a replica of hell


You can find almost everything in a plains, you can build your house the best in plains, need I say more? - darthvadern

Everyone is only voting jungle/forest because it looks cool. But plains is the best.

A great place to build houses, find villages and a good spawn point

Just a nice, simple place to have a world and build your home.

The End

The outer end are really interesting because it has one of my favourite mobs in the game: Shulkers! - darthvadern

End is epic


A forest neighboring a jungle that is situated near an ocean. That is where I built my Minecraft house. There is also a plains biome faraway and a desert biome near that. I built boat stops every once in a while along the shore. I just take the boat and go along the shore past the jungle to reach the plains and desert. I love my Minecraft world!

Filled with plenty of wood for crafting and when cutting down trees, there is plenty of fairly flat land for construction. Also, there are wolves to tame. - HollyRolo

Not the best in my opinion, sure, you can get a lot of wood but trees are in every biome - darthvadern

Lots of trees and usually lots of cows and pigs, too.


Easily my favourite biome, you can find wolves and foxes easily!

Taiga is honestly the best! Berries, foxes, wolves, a lot of trees, nice looking grass, I love everything in it!

Great for finding wolves and trees

Wolves spawn for great defense beautiful cenary and spruce trees even better near a ice spikes ice plains and mega taiga ferns spawn here looks like a pine tree forests less caverns mean less monsters


Swamps are cool because they have nice trees, and lily pads (you can use them for a cheap bridge to get around in water) and also witch huts

Lily Pad Ride from Super Mario Sunshine lol - darthvadern

Ewww swamps are UGLY! It has gray water which is NOT fancy.It even has fossils and I don't like prehistoric biomes like the desert and swamp.I even spawned near a swamp neighboring a desert.Double prehistoric?!?! NO WAY! -by BlaziePlayz

I don’t know why I like it, maybe because of witches


Dessert temples and villages dirt and saplings will give trees my favorite biome

Great for finding desert temples, dungeons and villages too.

These are best in survival if you're right next to a forest! - NintendoROCK3T

Desert temples one of my favourite biomes

The Contenders


I like red sand and all its variants a lot. The orange is pretty, and you don't get rain. The plateaus make for good spots for homes.

Really rare and cool to play on, with variety of stained clay. Looks swag too. Best if near another biome for trees

I love how it's different from other biomes, you don't get rain and it's so colorful - darthvadern

Lots of gold and caves, helpful to have tree biomes nearby, I have a swampland and forest nearby.

Giant Tree Taiga

It's got a nice amount of vegetation+ mushrooms don't need shade.
Lots of big trees that don't give hostile mobs shade.
Wolves, foxes and rabbits are all located here.
It's like a more habitable version of the jungle but more easy to survive in.

Wolves and foxes

A seriously underrated biome. It has mossy boulders, beautiful trees, great ground variety, lots of little features that make it even better and more. It is very diverse and majestic, not to mention its sunsets. It has massive amounts of wood and is great for surviving in. That’s why Mega Taiga is my favourite biome.

Looks ugly because of the podzol.Podzol looks like mud with WORMS in it.Gros

Snowy Tundra

I like this biome whoever thinks its ugly will be killed by a total pro in Minecraft PVP.

! Icy Plains is SO COOL! It Has Plenty Of Snow And Ice.Pretty Comfy! Ugly? Beautiful If You Ask Me!

It is snowy and looks Purdy

Cool (no pun intended) - darthvadern

Ice Spikes Plains

While this biome is very inhospitable on the surface it's very good for people who secretly base underground.

You can make a village and a house out of the ice spikes, I did that once and it looks really cool

Ice Spikes biomes look SICK. I'd say no. 2 to the Mushroom Island/ Mushroom Beach.

This is a awesome biome


Beautiful trees, grass, leaves and wood color, animals and villages.

You've got lots of trees, but not in annoying places. You've got plateaus, plains, horses, you name it! I love this biome because it's just so versatile (and great for building). The color of the grass is one of my favorite things about savannas, although there are probably some out there who aren't a fan. All in all, the savanna is quite unique with a warm atmosphere, but not barren, like a desert.

Exotic trees, horses, a fantastic colour of the grass and leaves. Great for a safari like buildings. Very refreshing and unique choice of a biome. I love warm Australian/African biomes.

Trees - Check!
Animals -Check!
Monsters - Check!
Villages - Check!

Birch Forest

I like wood. I go here.


1.8 and 1.13 made the ocean much more interesting - darthvadern

This oceans are cool,when I see below it,there were many squids,we have to use boats too to go to another land

Beach Boracay is a small island in the Philippines located approximately 315 kilometres south of Manila and 2 kilometres off the northwest tip of Panay Island in Western Visayas region of the Philippines.
Sunflower Plains
Flower Forest

Flower Forests are so cool. They are a brilliant source of flowers and dye. That is why they are my favourite.

It's a forest loaded with beautiful flowers. - mattstat716

Rare I guess - darthvadern

Deep Ocean

Has anyone ever tried underwater building? It looks cool for shops on the server I go to, with all the guardians swimming around.

Its mountains are really cool,we can make an underwater house too

Roofed Forest

You can find the super rare woodland mansion here - darthvadern

Would not recommend

It has 3 types of wood (most biomes have 0-2 types of wood) and if you don't like them you can easily travel over them. plus woodland mansions
