How to teleport anywhere in Minecraft

The worlds of Minecraft are huge. Even in the vanilla version of the game, a new world spans around 30 million blocks in each cardinal direction, not counting places like the Nether or the End.

This means that, even if you are fast, getting from one point to another can take years. Fortunately, there are shortcuts.

In both Java and Bedrock versions of Minecraft, you can use command codes to teleport almost anywhere, as well as teleport other players. That’s how.

How to teleport in Minecraft

Before you can teleport, you need to enable cheats in your Minecraft world. There are two ways to enable cheats depending on whether you’re starting a new world or playing in one you’ve already created, but they’re both simple.

Once you’ve activated the cheats, press T. on the keyboard or the right D-pad button on your controller to open the chat menu. Then type / tp .

At this point, you have a few different options. The best and easiest way to teleport is to use XYZ coordinates.

Every single location in Minecraft has unique XYZ coordinates. To find them in the Java edition, press F3 on the keyboard (sometimes Fn + F3 if you are on a laptop). In Bedrock, pause the game and click Settings then turn on Show coordinates in the Game Settings menu.

You can teleport to any location as long as you have its coordinates. To do this, type your command like this: / tp XYZ .

So, for example, if you are trying to teleport to location 70, 70, 70, you will have to type: / tp 70 70 70 .

If you’re not sure where you want to go, but you know which one direction you want to go, use the tilde key (~). Typing / tp ~ 70 ~ 70 ~ 70 you will deform 70 blocks east, 70 blocks in the air and 70 blocks south from where you currently are. To go in opposite directions (west, down, north) add a minus sign before the number.

You can teleport other players as well. Simply type their username before the coordinates, so if you’re looking to teleport a player named JohnDoe, you’ll need to type: / tp JohnDoe 70 70 70 .

And if all you want is to teleport up JohnDoe (or any other player), just type: / tp JohnDoe .

But be warned that if you’re not careful, you can teleport to solid ground. If you do, your character will start taking severe damage and will die within seconds. You can avoid this by adding the word true at the end of your cheat: this will make the game check if there are any blocks in the position you are trying to deform and will cancel the teleport if any.

Attempt to teleport in Minecraft with the "true" modifier and show the message that the teleport is invalid.

Here are some other quick teleport commands:

  • / tp @a @s : teleports every player to you. Replace @s with some coordinates to teleport them there.
  • / tp @e[type= EnemyName ] @s : Teleports any nearby enemies of a certain type directly to you. Replace the EnemyName placeholder with any mob you want.
  • / tp ~ 62 ~ : This keeps you in the same cardinal directions, but moves you to the altitude above sea level. This trick works for every coordinate: just replace any coordinate with a tilde if you want to stay on that coordinate but change the others.

How to teleport in The Nether and The End

Each Minecraft game takes you to the Overworld, which is the dimension where you will spend most of your time. To reach the other two dimensions of the game, The Nether and The End, special items are usually required.

But in Minecraft: Java Edition, you can teleport between dimensions in seconds. To do this, you will combine the teleport cheat with a new command: “/ execute”.

To teleport to another dimension, open the chat window and type: / execute in DimensionName run tp PlayerName ~ ~ ~ .

Replace the DimensionName placeholder with the world you want to deform into (you can choose Overworld, The_Nether or The_End), the PlayerName placeholder with the player you want to deform (leave it blank if you are deforming yourself), and the tildes with coordinates.

Be careful when choosing coordinates – both The Nether and The End have very different layouts than the Overworld, so it’s easy to teleport straight into lava, a mountain, or a bottomless pit. And unfortunately, the “true” command doesn’t work when changing the size.

The best strategy is to travel between dimensions first normally, mark some safe coordinates, then use them later.
