Minecraft has a variety of biomes that cover the Overworld and the Nether. Over the years, Mojang has added tons of biomes to the game world through numerous updates. In fact, more new biomes will be coming to the title in the 1.18 Caves and Cliffs Part 2 update.

There is a biome for every type of Minecraft player. Each biome has its own climate. Biomes with drastically different climates will not be able to spawn directly next to each other.

The main biomes in Minecraft, along with their climates, are listed below.

Note: Certain biomes in Minecraft have many variants.
