    There's nothing wrong with it grammatically but it's not very natural. What do you mean by "to have a sea"? Do you mean that it isn't near a sea? That it doesn't have a coastline? We don't usually refer to cities as having, or not having, a sea.

    Madrid is far from the sea.
    Madrid is not close to any sea.
    Madrid is not on the coast.
