Correct spelling, explanation: this word is a combination of an adjective final (which means eventual or ultimate) and suffix -ly used to create an adverb.
Definition of finally:
Adverb, lastly, eventually, at the end.
After years of trying, we finally managed to enter the foreign markets.
First, I overslept. Then I missed my bus and poured coffee on my shirt. Finally, I get to work by 10.
Incorrect spelling, explanation: because the word final ends with an l, one more l needs to be added because of the adverbial -ly suffix. The shorter version
finaly is incorrect.
