Incorporating water naturally into areas of daily life is a relatively new phenomenon. The bathroom and todays ideas of hygiene are modern inventions; a happy-go-lucky relationship with the sea gave birth to the modern beach resort, which is scarcely 100 years old. This essay looks at the way Viña del Mar, first an industrial extension to Valparaíso and then its upper class neighborhood, re-positioned itself towards the Pacific with the first beaches at Miramar.
