Teleporting in survival Minecraft is usually done by throwing an Ender pearl across multiple blocks. When the thrown Ender pearl touches a solid block, the player is instantly teleported to that specific location.
Sleeping on your bed in Minecraft, on the other hand, sets your spawn location to the coordinate where the bed is placed. Hence, every time you die in the game, except in hardcore mode, you will respawn back to your bed unless it is also destroyed.
We will go through everything you need to know about teleporting back to your bed in Minecraft.
Let’s get started with the guide!

Respawn After Dying
The fastest and easiest way to teleport back to your bed in Minecraft is to respawn after dying.
You can jump off of a cliff to die by taking a lot of fall damage. You can let aggressive mobs kill you. You can drown in a shallow lake, a winding river, or a deep ocean.
There are a lot of ways to die in Minecraft and each method can allow players to teleport back to their bed by respawning. However, just make sure that you have set the spawn location in your bed by using it at night or simply right-clicking on it in the daytime.
Another tip is to store all your items first in a chest before dying as everything you have in your inventory will drop to the ground when you die or are killed.
Using Cheats / Commands
There are also other ways to teleport back to your bed in Minecraft without dying. However, some of these methods involve the use of commands.
Commands are automatically enabled when playing in a Minecraft world in Creative mode. Before playing on a Survival world, make to toggle the Allow Cheats setting found in the World Options before creating a new Minecraft world.
From there, the commands /teleport or /tp can now be used. Typing /tp [player username] [coordinates/XYZ] will teleport the player in that specific coordinate.
Therefore, to teleport yourself on your bed in Minecraft, you have to know the exact coordinate location of that bed first. The coordinate can be obtained by simply standing on your bed and pressing the F3 button or the third function key on your keyboard to show the debug screen.
The exact coordinate of your bed is the XYZ shown on the upper left. Write these numbers down or remember them when you plan to explore around the world to easily teleport back to your bed by using commands.
In addition to that, the syntax or format of the teleport command varies on what version of Minecraft you are playing on. The summary for the teleport command syntax for the Java and Bedrock versions of the game can be seen here on the fandom wiki page.
Killing The Ender Dragon
Another way of teleporting back to your bed is going to End and killing the Ender Dragon. After killing the dragon, a portal appears in the middle of the main End island.
Going through that portal will instantly transport you back to your spawn point in the Overworld which is your bed if it is still intact. Thus, going to the End and passing through that portal again is a reliable method in teleporting back to your bed as long as you have an easy way of going to the End.
That is everything you need to know about teleporting back to your bed in Minecraft. Note that teleport or tp is not the only command available in Minecraft.
There are a lot of other commands that can be helpful for you that you can also use in any situation. The other Minecraft commands can be seen here on the Minecraft wiki page.
With this guide, you can plan what you are going to do with them when you encounter them in your world. Good luck and have fun!
