Timna is a national park half-an-hour from Eilat.
The views are fantastic, with a marvelous mix of sandstone and mineral mountains and fascinating archeology sites (mostly from old mining activities).
I visited this park twice, self-driving. All the geological and archeological attractions mentioned in the provided maps are worth seeing. The Restaurant and artificial pool area is so-so, but if you are traveling with children it is worth a stop to explore available activities).
The park is a great way to get a feeling of the desert even if you are self-driving. It is a few minutes from the main road to Eilat but you will feel in a whole different world. There are also several trekking and 4x4 routes if you have more time.
