    Both are the best, but it only depend that who you are. Crawler point of view XML and HTML site maps are good. But general user point of view Only HTML site-map is best.

    Both are important in sitemaps.the site will be crawling the website and generate an XML sitemap for submission to search engines. You can then use your XML sitemap to make a custom HTML sitemap - great for SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and for your site visitors.

    xml sitemap is good for search engine to index your site while html sitemap is used for user. Both sitemaps are good. Create xml sitemap using tool and submit it to google webmaster.

    Both Sitemap are good. If you have few pages in website then there is no need to put the sitemap.xml in the website.

    Though XML is for search engines and HTML for real users, I always use both of them in my sites.

    XML sitemaps are crawled by the search engines and HTML sitemaps are for human. It is always better to use a XML sitemap. It can be easily created using the online sites.

    i am using the Google Xml and Yoast SEO both. They both creates really good xml sitemaps, but an expert told me to use only Google XML plugin. As this is more accurate for Google. I didn't follow the reason but since I started using it, issues and error crawls are reduced.
