The alarm was raised on Wednesday shortly before 4.30pm when the boys got into difficulty due to incoming tides in the east promenade area.
Officers managed to coax one of the boys to the shore, however, the Coastguard was tasked to lift the other boy, 13, from the rocks by the RNLI.
Inspector Mick Wood said: "I am proud of all those involved with the rescue this afternoon and pleased that there has been such a positive outcome.
"No one was injured and no lives lost."
The senior police officer added: "However it could have been so different. The incident serves as a reminder to us that tides are extremely unpredictable.
"Anyone using the beach or rocks should constantly be aware of their surroundings; I am just thankful that the boys are safe and have now been reunited with their families."
