Desert wells are sandstone structures that generate in desert biomes.


Desert wells generate only in desert biomes. They have a 11000[JE only] or 1500[BE only] 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 still generates with the "Generate Structures" option disabled.[1]

In Bedrock Edition, desert wells have a chance to generate in a cluster between 16 blocks.

Desert well generation is capped at the coordinate Y-128. If desert terrain is higher than Y-128, no desert well is generated.


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