Arsela Peak (Bulgarian: връх Арсела, IPA: [ˈvrɤx ɐrˈsɛɫɐ]) is the peak rising to 1600 m near the south end of Owen Ridge, the southernmost portion of the main ridge of Sentinel Range in Ellsworth Mountains, Antarctica. It has precipitous and partly ice-free north and southwest slopes, and surmounts lower Nimitz Glacier to the southwest and the end of Wessbecher Glacier to the northeast.

The peak is named after the Thracian settlement of Arsela in Southern Bulgaria.
