Strinava Glacier (Bulgarian: ледник Стринава, ‘Lednik Strinava’ \'led-nik stri-'na-va\) is the 6 km long and 3 km wide glacier in Sullivan Heights on the east side of Sentinel Range in Ellsworth Mountains, Antarctica. It is draining the northeast slopes of Mount Farrell and the southeast slopes of the ridge of Mount Levack, and flowing eastwards from Zmeevo Pass to join Dater Glacier west of Dickey Peak in Flowers Hills.
The feature is named after the medieval fortress of Strinava in northern Bulgaria.
