Dañobeitia Crag (Bulgarian: хълм Даньобеития, ‘Halm Dañobeitia’ \'h&lm da-nyo-be-i-'ti-ya\) is the sharp rocky hill rising to 205 m on the north coast of Livingston Island in the South Shetland Islands, Antarctica. It is surmounting Siddins Point, formed by an offshoot of the hill, Hero Bay to the north and its parts Vasilev Bay to the east and Maleshevo Cove to the southwest.

The feature is named after Juan José Dañobeitia Canales, manager of the Spanish Antarctic programme, for his support for the Bulgarian Antarctic campaigns.
