Maui is often referred to as the Valley Isle.  This is because Maui is actually made up of two volcanoes with a bridge of flat land between them.  Maui used to be one big island, but as sea levels have risen the present-day geography has emerged, and now the valley that gives the island its nickname is all that remains.  Geoligists have predicted that in about 15000 years the valley will disappear under the ocean, leaving Maui’s two sets of mountains permanently apart from each other.
