Having a Minecraft beach base can add an exciting variety to your building project with interesting designs, and the following video tutorial by A1MOSTADDICTED MINECRAFT is proof of this. The combination of Spruce and Jungle blocks isn’t an obvious choice for many Minecraft players, but we must admit that it works wonderfully when used in a tropical island setting. You can have a wooden dock and deck on top of the water to extend your base and, potentially, add more details you see fit. Find your nearest beach biome and start building!

Something about fishing in Minecraft makes it a calm, relaxing experience. By only focusing on the bait’s movement and catching the flying fish, you can have a renewable food source in any body of water. So why not build a fishing hut to set your designated fishing space? The featured video tutorial by Mr. Mirror features a dock to place your boats for easy access and a small sunbathing area with two orange beds facing the coast. As part of the fencing around the hut, the barrels are an excellent, multifunctional detail that we wish more creators implement into their Minecraft house designs!

With a small farm on the side, you can easily build this set up in your first Survival days to shelter from hostile mobs. It’s all about maximizing the small hut space, with Barrels in the ceiling and Furnaces on the floor to ensure no block is left wasted. The Trapdoor to access the coop area is an interesting exploit that you can implement in other building projects too!

Here we have an easy Minecraft video tutorial by Creative Craft if you’d like to have a small house on a beach. Since the video tutorial doesn’t include instructions for the interior design, feel free to add your personal twist to the project! Welcome your guests (or just yourself) with a lovely pond on the front side of the base, and you can also follow the creator’s idea of adding Jungle trees to its surroundings for an extra summer vibe. The building requires Birch logs, White Concrete, Stone, and Glass as their primary resources, meaning that you must save all the Gravel and Sand you find during your adventures.

Here we have a lovely starter Minecraft home that’s perfect for players spawning next to a wonderful ocean view. Grey Jay Crafts has uploaded this video tutorial where the Minecraft beach house design is very simple to execute. The banners give the building a summer vibe that’s perfectly fit for this list! Spawn in a new world and gather the main resources for the exterior: White Concrete, Oak blocks and Glass.

Modern Home with Pool

While we all know that Minecraft physics allows any structure to stand on its own, adding pillars gives the home a realistic look. The following video tutorial by TSMC places the entire structure hovering on top of the water. While the original design requires Quartz for the main structure, you can also replace it with White Concrete. Having a pool on top of the ocean with Red Glazed Terracotta at the bottom is a decoration idea we haven’t seen frequently in these video tutorials. We must say it’s a nice exterior decor touch for your base, especially if you add some fish to the mix!

The materials list includes Oak Planks, Spruce Fences, Oak Stairs and Slabs, making it an accessible build for the early game! If you’re playing in a multiplayer server where you get a land plot assigned, this is perfect for maximizing the space available to produce crops and set your Survival essentials. You can also replace the crops with a small coop or animal pen at the surface level.

We know that Drowned can spawn within any body of water, so we suggest adding underwater lights to avoid this unpleasant situation. You can either use Glowstone or place Sea Lanterns to correctly light up the underwater area surrounding your base. Just as a side note, the latter is easier to achieve if you build a Guardian farm to get enough Prismarine Shards! 

We’re looking forward to hearing your opinions on these lovely Minecraft beach house ideas. Are you recreating any of these designs in your world? Let us know in the comments below, and thank you for reading!
