Bonavista Beach: sun, sea and sand just minutes from the city centre


Nestled between Gavà’s coastline and its pine groves, Bonavista Developments has transformed a 11,500 sqm plot of land with direct access to the beach, to develop eleven designer villas, each offering between 300 and 500 sqm of beautiful living space. Designed by the highly-acclaimed studio GCA Architects, each home features remarkable open-door architecture, perfect for enjoying the superb Mediterranean climate the whole year round.

GCA Architects’ design maximises natural light throughout the villas, even in the basements where – along with car parking facilities – each owner benefits from a bespoke leisure space, ideal for use as a gym, spa, wine cellar or private cinema. 

The studio designed the ground floor – featuring the living room, dining room and kitchen – as a vast relaxation and leisure area, where the large glazed windows offer magnificent views of the garden.

Natural light, the sea and nature encapsulate the core essence of the project, with white serving as the predominant colour.  All homes benefit from generous terraces, a private swimming pool and a lift.



At Bonavista Beach, the property façades are made with local Cumella ceramics, recreating the smooth ripple-effect of the Mediterranean waves.

Cerámica Cumella is a hundred-year-old firm founded by master ceramicist Antoni Cumella, who also founded the FAD art and design school in Barcelona. Some of his pieces can currently be found in Barcelona’s Modern Art Museum (MACBA).

Modernist sites such as the Sagrada Familia, Parc Güell and the Hospital de Sant Pau Cumella all boast Cumella ceramics, while the firm has also worked on modernist projects by prestigious studios, such as the Botín Art Centre in Santander (Renzo Piano), Santa Caterina Market (by Enric Miralles-Benedetta Tagliabue), and the MAAT in Lisbon (Amanda Levete). 



Founded in 1986, GCA Architects is renowned for its artistic simplicity and the impeccable quality of its projects. Headquartered in Barcelona, the studio boasts an impressive portfolio, completing projects in cities such as Paris, London, Brussels, Lisbon, Milan and Prague, as well as in New York, Vancouver and Shanghai. Its most notable works include the Hotel Boho in Prague, the Hotel Arts in Barcelona, the Puig offices in Paris, the Pronovias office building and showroom in New York, and the Mango design centre on the outskirts of Barcelona.

It is also famous for the residential properties and avant-garde villas that it has designed in cities such as Barcelona and Madrid, as well as coastal towns including Gavà, Sotogrande and Formentera.



Gavà Mar is one of the most sought-after locations on the Barcelona coast, offering excellent quality of life within striking distance of Barcelona and its El Prat Airport. Bonavista Beach offers the chance to live right next to Gavà beach, famous for its fine sand and magnificent natural greenery. It’s the perfect place for anyone who loves sun, sea and sailing.

Just twenty minutes from the centre of Barcelona and a stone’s throw from the main business areas and the most coveted schools and universities, the development is also just minutes from El Prat Airport.
