Vistas Al Mar

Hi I have a question. For the phrase "and with sea views," why is it "y con vistas al mar", rather than "y con vistas del mar"?

Hola Caroline

This is a set phrase in Spanish that always uses preposition "a". I guess this is because instead of using preposition "de" which is generally used for description, the focus here would be to express "views to / towards the sea" so the "a" clicks nicely.
