Belianske Tatras (Slovak: Belianske Tatry) is a mountain range in the Eastern Tatras in North Central Slovakia. The Eastern Tatras are part of the Tatra Mountains, which are part of the Inner Western Carpathians.

The highest point is Havran at 2,151.5 metres (7,059 ft). Like most of the area, the peak is not accessible for tourists to protect the rare animals and plants. The first inhabitants were shepherds in the 14th century.

The main 14 km long ridge contains mountains built of limestone and dolomite with distinctive karst topography.
