When you explore the seas of Minecraft, you may have heard of the wonderful treasures it contains, so we will see how to find buried treasure. These treasure chests contain a large number of valuable resources and are your only way to obtain Hearts of the Sea, which are needed when creating Conduits. So knowing how to find these lucrative chests can be a boon, especially in the early game.

Find a treasure map

The first thing to do is get your hands on a treasure map. This is what will allow you to track down the treasure in the first place, as it's next to impossible to find the chests in a decent amount of time otherwise. You will have to explore the ocean and find shipwrecks deep under the waves. Most often, these wrecks will contain a chest containing a treasure map. Once you have the map in hand, the treasure hunt can fully begin.

How to find buried treasure

With the map in hand, right click on it to open it and reveal the location of the buried treasure. Using your position on the edges of the map relative to where the treasure is, you will need to use the map to find your way to that location. Once there, you need to pull out your trusty shovel or maybe even a pickaxe depending on where the chest has decided to spawn, then start digging. The buried treasure chest will often only be a few blocks below where the X is on the map, so if you've dug deep enough and haven't found the chest yet, it may be time to skip a few blocks and try again. But once you find the right spot, the chest will be yours with all the loot inside.
