A Swamp is a Biome commonly found in a Minecraft world.


Swamps consist of shallow bodies of discolored Water filled with Lily Pads, discolored grass, and oak trees covered in Vines. This is the only biome where lily pads and Blue Orchids can grow. In Pocket Edition, giant mushrooms can also be found.

Witch Huts can generate in swamps, and Slimes can spawn here; however, their spawn rate depends on the moon's cycle.



  • Be careful when walking around this biome during the day, as hostile Mobs may lurk in the shadows under trees.
  • There is an increased danger of mobs attacking in swamps when compared to most other biomes, as slimes and Witches spawn in addition to typical Hostile mobs.
  • The swamp is one of the best places to find large quantities of Clay.
  • Slimes have a higher chance of spawning in a swamp during a full moon.
