The Private Island is the first island that the players see upon entering SkyBlock. Players can build freely at this location, as well as place Furniture, Minions and Portals. The original size of every Private Island is 160x160 blocks, however it can be upgraded further into the game. You can access this location through your SkyBlock Menu's Travel page or by typing /is in the chat.

The Beginning

At the start of every player's journey, their Private Island will look the same way - two islands, one with a tree (where player spawns), another with a Cobblestone Minion, Hub Portal, Jerry and a starting chest. The quests that appear on the player's screen will guide them through the first few tasks that will help them to accustom themselves with the world of SkyBlock.

Jerry is an NPC that will tell you about the latest SkyBlock updates and deliver lost items through the deliveries page (only items lost due to server lag). You can also change the player island settings, change island biome, and move the Jerry through the NPC's menu.

Island Builds

Many players have started utilizing various builds that help them throughout their SkyBlock progression, such as auto-sorters, auto-brewers, farms and cobblestone generators. Some creative individuals even decided to build pixel art on their Private Island!


Every night (except the first one), similarly to vanilla Minecraft, Mobs will spawn in the places with low light level on your Private Island. Their level is decided based on the player's Combat level, so even in the later stages of the game they should be taken into account.

However, players can prevent mobs from spawning by placing a Repelling Candle or a Day Saver on their island.


There are various Furniture items that players can place on their Private Island. Some have purely cosmetic purposes (Tiki Torch, Beach Ball), while others can help you store items (Wood Chest+) or level up certain skills (Enchanting Table).

Guesting/Social Skill


You can visit other players' islands by typing /visit <player> or invite another player to visit yours /invite <player>. However there are limitations to the amount of people that can be on a Private Island:

Rank Maximum Amount of Visitors
Default 1
[VIP] and [VIP+] 3
[MVP] and [MVP+] 5
[MVP++] 7

The Private Island's maximum amount of visitors can be increased through "Guests Limit" upgrade from Elizabeth NPC in Community Center. Players with [MVP++] rank can bypass the guesting limits (up to 10 extra players).
