A man accused of being a serial flasher in the Coromandel, who was caught by undercover police at a popular holiday spot, is fighting his charges.

However, Michael Bruce Bell, 41, is still banned from getting closer than 100 metres to any beach.

Through his lawyer, Phoebe Bromiley, Bell this morning entered a not guilty plea in the Thames District Court to a charge of obscenely exposing himself at Cooks Beach on New Year's Eve.

Bell was arrested after police set up an undercover sting and posed as holidaymakers after complaints about a man flashing tourists.

At an earlier appearance, Bell indicated that he believed he had a defence to the charges, but very little resources to engage a lawyer and he needed time to seek legal assistance.
