The Water Nymph (also known as The Beach Flirt) is a 1912 American silent comedy "split reel" short film starring Mabel Normand and directed by Mack Sennett. Normand performed her own diving stunts for the film, which was the first Keystone comedy.

The film precedes, and may have been the direct inspiration for, the Sennett Bathing Beauties performers first featured in 1915.[1]
