The Top Ten

1 Plains Plains

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

Looks aren't everythinh, nor the only thing

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

I agree. Flatland gives you ultimate freedom of creation!

2 Forest

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.

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

3 Jungle

They looks the best! No doubt! I love the jungle temple as well - darthvadern

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

Great for building unique structures like treehouses

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

4 Extreme Hills

Cool place for PvP

Yaas fam squad *dab* *dab* get lit "oh ya" - Kool-aid Man

I found a pinksheep here!

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

5 Desert

Why is it that deserts are better in video games than in real like, I mean this isn't the first time I like being in the desert, Quest For Glory II: Trial By Fire also had a super fun desert. You can also find desert temples and sand villiages here - darthvadern

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

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

Cacti, sand, sandstone, easily spotted caves and NPC villages. - HollyRolo

6 Taiga

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

Cool I guess - darthvadern

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

7 Mesa

Mesa have lots of terracotta.

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.

Looks bootiful -by BlaziePlayz

8 Mushroom Islands

Extra rare - darthvadern

Pretty much unlimited food plus mobs cannot spawn

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


9 Swampland

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

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

10 Ice Plains

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

Cool (no pun intended) - darthvadern

It is snowy and looks Purdy

Really cool cause bunnys and some spruce trees spawn and cute rabbits even great if near a ice spikes

The Contenders

11 Savannah Savannah

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

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!

I love savannahs - darthvadern

12 Birch Forest Hills
13 Ocean

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

14 Ice Plains Spikes

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

15 Flower Forest

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

Rare I guess - darthvadern

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

16 Giant Tree Taiga Giant Tree Taiga
17 PootisLand

Whats is pootisland

Please tell me what is pootisland - MChkflaguard_Yt

Tell me what pootisland and budder biome is

18 Mega Taiga

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

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.

19 Roofed Forest

You can find the super rare woodland mansion here - darthvadern

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

20 Budder Biome

SkyDoesMinecraft dumb fanboy alert - MChkflaguard_Yt

What is the budder biome?

Go back to YouTube


21 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

22 The Moon

Not a biome, a mod - darthvadern

I like to build giant orange or yellow castles.

23 Ice Spikes


Com on it. Is awesome

24 The End

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

End is epic

25 Jungle Edge
26 Jungle Edge M

The rarest biome in all of vanilla Minecraft! Only covers about 1/500000 of the world, and I feel proud after finding one in like 12 hours lol. Also the name for this biome is no longer "Jungle Edge M", it is now "Modified Jungle Edge"

27 Beach

28 The Void
