The Mesa is a rare Biome added in update 1.7, consisting of Red Sand, Terracotta and five different colors of stained terracotta. In the latest update of 1.13 the biome name of Mesa will be changed to Badlands.


This biome is similar to a Desert, but with a few variations. The vegetation is made up of Dead Bushes and cacti in the low-lying areas, and Oak Trees on the Plateau. The mesa is also one of the only places to find coarse dirt. The topography can range anywhere from flat, to canyons, to tall spires of terracotta. The mesa contains very few mobs.

As of update 1.10, Mineshafts generate commonly on the surface in this biome, and Gold Ore can now be found at surface level (Y:64), with the same abundance as Iron Ore.
