Beștepe is a commune in Tulcea County, Romania. Its name comes from Turkish, meaning "five hills/peaks" (beş – five, tepe – hill/peak), due to a chain of hills which lie nearby.

In 2004, the commune was established via a local referendum by separation from the Mahmudia commune.

The Beștepe commune includes 3 villages:

  • Beștepe
  • Băltenii de Sus (Carasuhatu de Sus until 1964)
  • Băltenii de Jos (Carasuhatu de Jos until 1964)
