Mirador Hill (Spanish: Cerro Mirador, 'Balcony Hill') is the rocky hill rising to 307 m on Hurd Peninsula, Livingston Island in the South Shetland Islands, Antarctica and surmounting Johnsons Glacier to the north-northwest and False Bay to the southeast.

The feature was mapped and descriptively named in 1991 by the Spanish Antarctic Expedition from its excellent view towards False Bay.


The peak is located at 62°40′53.4″S 60°20′23″W / 62.681500°S 60.33972°W / -62.681500; -60.33972 which is 1.35 km south-southwest of Napier Peak, 880 m north by east of Moores Peak and 4.49 km west-northwest of Kikish Crag (Spanish mapping in 1991, and Bulgarian in 1996, 2005 and 2009).
