Some people have asked me where exactly the spawn point is located on the map.

This table shows the exact spawn point. You can normally spawn within a radius of 20 blocks around this coordinate:

This location corresponds to the north of Kenya, Africa, near the lake Turkana. This is the origin of mankind, therefor the best place to start your Minecraft adventure.

You can see the noisy terrain with sand and grass, which is unusual for Minecraft. In the background, you will see some trees and bamboo (only in 1.15). On the right side, you can see a part of the border between Kenya and Ethiopia.
