It is mainly agricultural and the district is neighbored on the south by the Magura District, north of Khulna District, with the Faridpur District and Gopalganj District on the east, and Jessore District to the west. The most iconic information of Narail is that almost 10 acres of Sundarban Forest is in Narail marking the entry-point for tourists visiting the forest.
