Belaya Rayon is located on the south-central edge of Kursk Oblast, on the border with Belgorod Oblast to the south. The terrain is a hilly plain averaging 200 meters above sea level; the district lies on the Orel-Kursk plateau of the Central Russian Upland. The rayon's main river is the Psel River, which flows southwest from the district into Ukraine, where it empties intothe Dnieper River. The Psel is typically frozen from December to early March. Belaya Rayon is 60 km south of the city of Kursk, and 520 km south of Moscow. The area measures 40 km (north-south), and 38 km (west-east); total area is 950 km2 (about 3.2% of Kursk Oblast). The administrative center is the town of Belaya.[3]

The district is bordered on the north by Bolshesoldatsky District, on the east by Oboyansky District, on the south by Krasnoyaruzhsky District, Rakityansky District, and Ivnyansky District of Belgorod Oblast, and on the west by Sudzhansky District.
