Action is an interface :

public interface Action

Action Interface represents a single user-interaction action.

and Actions is a Class that extends Object class

public class Actions
extends java.lang.Object

Use this class rather than using the Keyboard or Mouse directly.

 Actions class is based on builder design pattern which builds a composite actions with the aggregation of Selenium WebDriver, where webdriver is only used to identify the presence of web elements on web application


 Action interface is only used to represent the single user interaction i.e to perform the series of action items build by Actions class.
