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.
