Your first sight in this world will be that of swamp trees – while the spawn point sets you on a plains biome, there’s a swamp just in front of you.
Turn to your right to see a pit in the ground, leading into a tunnel system – another, smaller entrance is close by. Beyond that lies a forest.
A little way to the north is a large crater, lined with sand and containing a small lake. It looks a bit like there was a massive sand explosion which later got filled in with water.
