Malham Cove is a natural limestone formation north of the village of Malham, North Yorkshire, England. A popular beauty spot within the Yorkshire Dales, it is a large, curved limestone cliff at the head of a valley. At the top of the valley is a limestone pavement.

Originally, a large waterfall flowed over the cove as a glacier melted above it. There is now an underwater stream running from Malham Tarn down into the valley below.
