esta vs está

Why is it "pero esta muy fría" instead of "pero está muy fría"?  Also, why is it "está protegida" instead of "es protegida"?

Hola R,

"esta" without the accent was a typo. I just corrected it: está fría

We are using "está protegida" because we also use estar to indicate a "state" or a "result". So, because there are some pine trees, it is not very windy there, so as a result, the beach is protected from the wind. 

I hope this clarified it.

Saludos

Inma
