This is the very first option that came into mind when you heard the word “mining”. And Minecraft is no more different than the real world. So, caves are the best places to find gravel in Minecraft. 


Cave mining is beneficial when you have a lot of time and you are collecting gravel for future purposes. As the gravels are uncommon to find in the caves. But also, it will get you a lot of other precious ores and blocks. but it's best if you are on the monthly mining trip.

Mining a cave is a sensitive play. Make sure there is no gravel block over your head to avoid sudden death.

Water bodies

Small water bodies like beaches and rivers can be good options for newbies who are insecure about their lives and don't want to take big risks.

Water bodies

Mine the bed of beaches and rivers and you can find a usable amount of gravel in it. No need to worry about the suffocation problem or breathing periods in these low-lying water bodies.

Ocean’s bedrock

Normal oceans, deep oceans, frozen oceans, and cold oceans are well known for carrying gravel treasures. You can go deep down in their basements and collect a ton of gravel.

Nothing better than oceans, when looking for gravel in bulk, but there are some costs you should bear with it. First, mining in the ocean is slower and secondly, you have to take care of your breathing from time to time.

You can use a potion for night vision and weather breathing that can solve most of the problems that come with ocean mining.

Nether world

If there is any place that produces more gravel than a gravelly mountain - that is in the nether. We call it “Hellish biomes”, this is another place that supplies you gravel in bulk.


You can find gravel chunks near the lava ocean and mine them with your hands or shovel. While walking on them, take care not to fall into the lava - as some gravel blocks do not have any solid block to support, and walking onto them will make you fall into them.

Barter with Piglins

Piglins has been there for you since the 1.16 update, so don't forget to ask them for help. They reside in the crimson forest and nether waste looking to make a trade for you. You can get gravel in exchange for gold ingots with Piglins. 


Just hold the gold ingot near the Piglin. If the Piglins are drawn to you, this indicates that they are ready to barter. Then you drop the gold ingot near them and they will drop an item for it.

The probability of getting gravel is 8% to 10%. So, you can get 1 to 5 gravels in 10 to 12 attempts.
