es = and?

Sorry for asking again, but is it possible that there are some mistakes in the new vocabulary section? For example, in the link below, "and" is given as one of the translations of the Spanish word "es". However, I think in the example sentences the word "y" means "and", and not the word "es" (e.g. "Y ésta es la playa"). Or am I completely confused now? :)

Here's the link (I'm not sure if you can actually follow it or if it leads to my personal language account or something): http://duolingo.com/#/word/es/ser/Verb

The word "y" means "and". You are right. "es" only means "is".

As far as I know naimetti is correct. His is the same answer I would have given.
