Desert wells are sandstone structures that generate in desert biomes.


Desert wells generate only in desert biomes. They have a 11000 chance to be generated in any desert chunk, which makes them a rare sight. It is possible for a well to generate around a cactus. The well structure will still generate with the "Generate Structures" option disabled.

It is common to find two desert wells spawning in the same chunk.‌[Bedrock Edition only]


Desert wells are built of sandstone blocks and slabs with a water source inside.
